The American Academy in Rome (AAR) offers up to six fellowships for Italian artists and scholars in 2019–20. These fellowships are available in the field of Art and Humanities.
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.
The aim of the fellowships is to give support to Italian artists and scholars.
In 1893, a group of American architects, painters and sculptors met regularly while planning the fine arts section of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The group discussed the idea of forming an American school for artists in Europe as a place for American artists to study and further their skills.
