Rome Fellowship Reopen for Applications

  • 1 April 2022

The Rome Fellowship for 2022/2023 has reopened for applications, closing date midnight on Friday 29 April.

The Rome Fellowship offers one individual the opportunity to research in Rome for three months, whilst being hosted by the British School at Rome (BSR). Whilst based at the BSR the Fellow will have access to their specialist library with c. 110,000 volumes, their rich collection of maps and rare prints as well as the photographic archive which includes prints and negatives of rare and unique collections.

The Fellowship provides residential accommodation and meals at the BSR, which hosts some thirty-five individuals at any one time, including academics and fine artists who have all won awards to spend an extended period in Rome. There is a strong sense of community at the BSR with fellows and residents encouraged to take part in the vibrant life, from communal dining to organised events. Recent Rome Fellow, Tommaso Zerbi, said that his time in Rome was enhanced by the “the extraordinary intellectual, creative and supporting environment of the BSR”.

To be eligible to apply for the Rome Fellowship you must be an individual who is working on a topic on British-Italian art or architectural history. The scope is relatively wide; please contact the Grants & Fellowships Manager with any questions regarding topic eligibility.

The successful individual needs to be able to take up the Fellowship for three months between September 2022 – July 2023 and applications are open to scholars, researchers, curators, archivists and GLAM professionals from any country but they must be willing to engage with the Italian language (lessons will be included if needed).

Alongside receiving free accommodation and meals, there will be an honorarium awarded to the individual.

Applications are now open and will close at midnight on 29 April. References are due by Thursday 5 May. The successful applicant will be notified by the end of May.

Apply now.
