The Rome Fellowship in Contemporary Art is a valuable new opportunity for an early-career artist, working in any discipline, who has a significant track record
Duration: 3 months (October-December 2012)
Research and travel grant: £1,500/month; plus a grant towards a short pre-residency visit to the BSR.
Specific award criteria:
Applicants must be of British or Commonwealth nationality, or have been working professionally or studying at postgraduate level for
at least the last 3 years in the UK or Commonwealth (i.e. since January 2009).
Selection for this Scholarship is by a panel including Nicholas Berwin, Sacha Craddock, John Gill, Penny Johnson, Karsten Schubert and Wolfgang Tillmans.
An application form is available here.
Application fee: £25. (This also covers the Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship and the Sainsbury Scholarship in Painting and Sculpture, if eligible.)
Deadline: 31 January 2012.
In making an appointment to an award the Faculty of the Fine Arts will assess all applications using the following set of criteria:
1. the quality of the applicant’s creative output and the appropriateness of their qualifications;
2. the extent to which the applicant’s proposal reflects the purpose of the award;
3. the viability of the proposal as a project to be carried out with support from the BSR.
In addition to these three basic selection criteria, the selectors will take into consideration the potential for the award to impact on the applicant’s creative development and will attempt to ensure that the needs and interests of the successful applicant are compatible with the facilities available at the BSR and the interests of its community. Credit will be given to those who are no longer in full- or part-time education at the time of application. Candidates will be expected to have some knowledge of Italian or be willing to learn. Those who acknowledge the importance of communicating with Italians will derive the most benefit from being at the School.
Successful applicants must:
- be prepared to learn some Italian before going to Rome;
- take out medical insurance for the duration of their tenure;
- submit a report on their tenure, together with images of work completed in Rome.
Partners can be accommodated for strictly limited periods by prior agreement but must pay for their board and lodging at the BSR’s prevailing rates. Children cannot be accommodated. The BSR reserves the right to alter any aspect of the residencies and the competitions. The panel’s decision is final; and feedback cannot be given on unsuccessful applications.
The British School at Rome is committed to a policy of equal opportunities in its awards policy and in the way it offers access to all its facilities and services. The object of the policy is to ensure that no applicant or awardee is treated more or less favourably than any other on grounds of (for example) race, colour, gender, religion, marital status, social background, disability, and age (except where the conditions of the awards specify otherwise).
It is the policy of the British School at Rome to offer full or equivalent access to all users. The School aims to support full participation by residents in all aspects of its academic and social life. The School is a small institution but will offer its resources, staff and equipment to address the needs of staff, awardees or visitors with disabilities wherever it can. Applicants with special needs are requested to contact the Registrar before submitting their application to discuss requirements. The BSR is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 [Registration Number K0335060] and adheres to the Data Protection Principles. Applicants should be aware that information that they provide will be stored in electronic form. It will be provided to those who assess applications and to staff of the School, and will be used to compile published lists of award-holders.
