Overview

In addition to Rome Prize and Italian Fellows, the Academy hosts recipients of fellowships awarded by educational and cultural organizations around the world.

For an extra fee, Member Institutions have the right to name an Affiliated Fellow to be in residence at the Academy for a period of four weeks to three months. Affiliated Fellows receive housing (single room with private bath), meals on the same plan as Rome Prize Fellows, the opportunity to sign up for Academy trips and tours, invitations to Academy events, and access to Academy scholarly resources including the Library, Photographic Archive and the Archaeological Study Collection.

Affiliated Fellows add to the diversity of the Academy’s artistic and scholarly community. Affiliated Fellowships are coordinated by the organizations for which they are named. Interested candidates must apply through the organization.
