Visual art awards at British School at Rome

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

Visual art awards at the BSR 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. Awards include board and accommodation, award-holders are required to live at the BSR throughout the period of the award. There are two scholarships currently open for applications:
