Rome Prize Competition
Annual Application Deadline: November 15

The American Academy in Rome is the foremost American overseas
center for independent study and advanced research in the fine arts
and the humanities.  Each year, through a national competition, the
Academy offers Rome Prize fellowships in up to eighteen disciplines.
Jury members, prominent in their disciplines, are drawn from all
regions of the country and change annually.  Fellowships provide
each winner with a stipend, room and board, and work space at the
Academy, which occupies eleven acres and ten buildings atop the
Janiculum, the highest hill within the walls of Rome.  Rome Prize
winners pursue independent projects, which vary in content and
scope.  To complement their work, a series of walks, talks and tours
in and around Rome, Italy and Europe is offered during the year.

Rome Prize fellowships are offered for periods ranging from six
months to two years.  Two six-month fellowships in Historic
Preservation and Conservation with stipends of up to $9,000 are
being offered for the 2000-2001 fellowship year.

Subject to funding availability, the Rome Prizes are also offered in
the following disciplines:

        Preservation, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Landscape
