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 the Mediterranean is offered during the year. Rome Prize
fellowships are offered for periods ranging from six months to two
years.  Stipends for the Rome Prize range from $10,000 to $20,000,
depending on the terms of the fellowships. The Rome Prize is offered
