The British School at Rome (BSR) – Visual Arts awards

Website: http://www.bsr.ac.uk/awards/fine-arts

Visual art awards at the BSR offer artists access to Rome and Italy as an exceptional repertory of the visual culture of the past, and encourage informed and innovative responses to that cultural heritage.They offer artists at different stages of their careers the superb opportunity to research and focus on their work away from normal pressures, and to use the BSR as a base to explore Rome and Italy.

The Ampersand Fellowship: is a new opportunity for an exceptional, ambitious and creative artist, at mid-career and beyond, working within the visual arts artform, to spend nine months in Rome.

The Bridget Riley Fellowship: is an opportunity for exceptional artists, at an early to mid-point in their career, whose work has a significant drawing element, to spend six months in Rome.

The selected artists will receive a research and travel grant of £1,500 per month, a grant towards a short pre-residency visit to the BSR and board and accommodation in a residential studio at the BSR. Applicants must be of British or Commonwealth nationality, or have been working professionally or studying at postgraduate level for at least the last three years in the UK or Commonwealth. There is an application fee of £25 which covers both fellowships if eligible.
