Applications Invited for Abbey Fellowships in Painting

Fellowships offering three-month residencies for mid-career artists at the British School at Rome.

The British School at Rome (BSR) is a centre of interdisciplinary research excellence supporting the full range of arts, humanities and social sciences.

Abbey Fellowships in Painting offer three annual three-month residencies at BSR for mid-career artists. The definition of painting is understood to include all artists working in the ‘expanded field’.

Fellowships are open to UK and US citizens and artists of other nationalities who have been resident in the UK or US for at least five of the last 10 years. Candidates must be at mid-career stage but there is no age limit. Candidates are encouraged to learn some Italian before going to Rome.

The three-month fellowships attract a monthly stipend of £1,500. Awards provide full board and lodging in purpose-built studios at BSR. Awards offer all expenses paid studio time but there is no teaching or mentorship involved.

Applications (for BSR residencies in 2023/24) must be submitted by the deadline of 15 January 2023 (24:00 GMT).
