The Rome Prize offers "the gift of 'time and space to think and work.'" Winning artists and scholars receive a stipend, workspace, and room and board at the Academy’s eleven-acre campus on the Janiculum Hill in Rome. Recipients in eleven disciplines including landscape architecture are selected through a rigorous independent jury process.
“This class of Rome Prize winners once again includes some of America’s most gifted scholars and artists,” said Mark Robbins, President and CEO of The American Academy in Rome. “Their fellowship experience, living and working in a multidisciplinary community in Rome, has an enduring impact individually and on the wider intellectual and cultural sphere.”
