The American Academy in Rome

The American Academy in Rome has announced the winners of its annual Rome Prize, which affords artists and scholars from the United States a six-to-11-month residency at the academy, located in a 17th-century villa in the heart of Rome. The 31 winners for the 2016-2017 program represent fields including architecture, design, and historic preservation and conservation. In addition to room and board, a stipend, and a work space, some winners may also receive project funding of up to $5,000. Selected by independent juries, this year’s class is joined by six Italian Fellows.
