The mission of the American Academy in Rome is to foster the pursuit of advanced research and independent study in the fine arts and humanities. The Rome Prize Fellowship in Landscape Architecture provides American landscape architects with a special opportunity for advanced study, travel, and association with other fellows in Rome. 

For over a century, the American Academy In Rome has awarded the Rome Prize to support innovative and cross-disciplinary work in the arts and humanities. Rome Prize Fellowships include a stipend, room and board, and individual work space at AAR’s eleven-acre campus in Rome.

Landscape Architecture includes:

  • environmental design and planning
  • landscape/ecological urbanism
  • landscape history, sustainability and
  • ecological studies, and geography
