The Rome Prize is a prestigious American award made annually by the American Academy in Rome, through a national competition, to 15 emerging artists (working in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Historic Preservation and Conservation, Literature, Musical Composition, or Visual Arts) and to 15 scholars (working in Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance and early Modern, or Modern Italian Studies). They are announced annually in New York City.
Rome Prize winners go to the American Academy, situated on the Janiculum, Rome's highest hill. The American Academy in Rome was established in 1894 and chartered by an Act of the United States Congress in 1905.
