The American Academy in Rome (AAR) offers up to six fellowships for Italian artists and scholars in 2017–18. The Italian Fellows are an integral part of the AAR community. Italian artists and scholars live and work in the Academy community, pursuing their own projects participating in its collaborative, interdisciplinary environment and helping make connections between Rome Prize Fellows and their Italian peers.
Italian fellows are required to live in Rome, at the Academy. All fellowships include room, board and a stipend. Length of stay varies by the fellowship.
Italian Fellowship winners will be announced both in Italy and in New York as part of the American Academy Rome Prize ceremony.
