Scholarship to support British and Irish artists, for whom the use of paint or drawing is central to their practice, to enable them to travel to Italy to undertake research.
Founded in 1901, the British School at Rome (BSR) is a research academy based in Rome, Italy. It is mainly funded by the British Academy and supports studies of the arts, architecture, humanities and social sciences within the Rome and Italian context.
BSR’s Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship aims to encourage artists for whom the use of paint and/or drawing is central to their practice. It is named in memory of Derek Hill who had a love of Italy and was adviser to practising artists at the BSR in the 1950s. The scholarship enables candidates to travel to and stay at the BSR in Italy for a period of three months.
