Affiliated Fellows


In addition to Rome Prize and Italian Fellows, the American Academy in Rome hosts recipients of Affiliated Fellowships awarded by educational and cultural organizations around the world. Affiliated Fellows add to the diversity of the Academy’s artistic and scholarly community, and these fellowships are coordinated by the organizations for which they are named. Interested candidates must apply through the organization.
