By the end of the summer, the American Academy in Rome will make available online the application forms for the 2013 Rome Prize competition.

We would be grateful if you could post a link to the Academy website or an announcement of the coming year’s competition to the Ohio State University website, send a group email to your staff, faculty, and alumni, or otherwise make the information available to those who might be interested in applying for this prestigious fellowship.

The American Academy in Rome is the oldest American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the arts and the humanities.

For one hundred years the Academy’s eleven acre center in Rome has provided an inspiring environment for those who practice the fine and liberal arts.

The Rome Prize is awarded annually to about thirty candidates, each selected by a jury of distinguished peers through a national competition.

The winners are invited to Rome to pursue their work for periods ranging from six months to two years. They are provided with stipends, residential accommodation, meals, private studies or studios, and most important, an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic freedom, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovation. Deadline is November 1, 2013, see
