Applications will also be accepted between November 2 and November 15 for an additional fee.
Rome Prize fellowships vary depending on the category. While most Rome Prize fellowships are eleven-months, fellowships in the Design category are six-months and we do offer two-year fellowships for pre-doctoral candidates in the Humanities. We also offer applicants in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Historic Preservation and Conservation a choice of either six- or eleven-month fellowships. Please see the program guidelines for more details.
Applicants for Rome Prize fellowships must be United States citizens at the time of application, except for those applying for the NEH post-doctoral fellowship in the Humanities (Ancient Studies, Medieval Studies, Renaissance and Early Modern Studies, and/or Modern Italian Studies). U.S. citizens and those foreign nationals who have lived in the U.S. for the three years immediately preceding the application deadline may apply for the NEH post-doctoral fellowships. Additionally, undergraduate students are not eligible for Rome Prize fellowships and previous winners of the Rome Prize are not eligible to re-apply.
Each Rome Prize winner is provided with a stipend, meals, a bedroom with
private bath, and a study or studio. Those with children under 18 live
in partially subsidized apartments nearby. Winners of 6-month and
11-month fellowships receive stipends of $13,000 and $26,000,
respectively. Owing to the fluctuating dollar/euro exchange rate and the
high cost of living in Rome, the stipends offered may not cover all
expenses. This is especially true for prize winners who come to Rome
with spouses, companions and/or children.
Fellowships generally begin at the Academy in early September and end in early August. Winners of the 11-month Rome Prize fellowships may select to depart the Academy after nine months with no reduction to the fellowship stipend.
