Corporate support is vital to the American Academy in Rome’s mission of advancing the arts and humanities. The American Academy in Rome invites the support of corporations who wish to contribute to the Academy’s Fellowships, program of events, scholarly resources and operations.

Corporate Members

For more information about Corporate Membership and the McKim Medal Gala, please contact Inga Clausing, Associate for Development and External Affairs.

Italian Affiliated Fellowships have been made available since 2005 to talented Italian artists and scholars, enabling them to visit and carry out projects at the American Academy in Rome and thereby contributing to the enrichment of the community as a whole. As an essential part of what continues to make the Academy experience so special and unique, these funds result from the remarkable generosity of many corporations, who each year participate in the McKim Medal Gala, which is held at the magnificent Villa Aurelia in honor of a person who is internationally recognized for his or her superior achievements. They also support an exchange program for humanistic research between the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and the American Academy in Rome.

Businesses and firms supporting the McKim Medal Gala will become Corporate Sponsors of the Academy. As such, they will enjoy many benefits, including invitations to exclusive events and special rates for corporate functions at Villa Aurelia.
