Rome prize 2010 - Bando di concorso

E' stato indetto dalla American Academy in Rome, il bando di concorso ROME PRIZE 2010, cosi' come negli anni passati. Anche quest'anno 30 borse di studio sono state messe a disposizione di artisti, studenti e studiosi che hanno svolto ricerche particolari nei vari settori di studio, cosi' come viene illustrato nel bando di concorso allegato. Il testo e' ovviamente in lingua inglese, in quanto i destinatari sono in genere nativi di lingua inglese.

Each year, the coveted Rome Prize is awarded to thirty emerging artists and scholars in the early or middle stages of their careers who represent the highest standard of excellence in the arts and humanities.

Fellows are chosen from the following disciplines:
- Architecture
- Design
- Historic Preservation and Conservation
- Landscape Architecture
- Literature (awarded only by nomination through the American Academy of Arts and Letters)
- Musical Composition
- Visual Arts
- Ancient Studies
- Medieval Studies
- Renaissance and Early Modern Studies
- Modern Italian Studies

Prize recipients are invited to Rome for six months or eleven months to immerse themselves in the Academy community where they will enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand their own professional, artistic, or scholarly pursuits, drawing on their colleagues’ erudition and experience and on the inestimable resources that Italy, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Academy have to offer.

Rome Prize winners are the core of the Academy’s residential community, which also includes Residents and Visiting Artists and Scholars.

Fellows are encouraged to work collegially within and across disciplines in pursuit of their individual artistic and scholarly goals.

Eligibility
—Applicants for all Rome Prize fellowships, except those applying for the National Endowment for the Humanities post-doctoral fellowship, must be United States citizens at the time of the application.

—U.S citizens and those foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for three years immediately proceeding the application deadline may apply for the NEH post-doctoral fellowships.

—Graduate students in the humanities may apply only for pre-doctoral fellowships.

—Previous winners of the Rome Prize are not eligible to re-apply.

—Undergraduate students are not eligible for Rome Prize fellowships.

Individuals may submit joint applications provided the work is genuinely collaborative in nature as demonstrated by the materials submitted. In the case of joint applications, each individual must meet all eligibility requirements. Joint applications must be submitted in one package. Joint applicants selected as winners will share one prize.

Winners of the Rome Prize may hold other fellowships concurrently, as long as the requirements of such fellowships do not conflict with the Academy’s rules. Applicants are required to disclose all fellowships and awards they expect to hold during their proposed residency in Rome, including sabbatical pay. The Academy may make adjustments to the stipends based on other awards held by Rome Prize recipients. Winners may not hold full-time jobs while at the Academy.

General Information

Each Rome Prize winner is provided with a stipend, meals, a bedroom with private bath, and a study or studio. Those with children under 18 live in partially subsidized apartments nearby. Winners of 6-month and 11-month fellowships receive stipends of $12,500 and $25,000, respectively. Owing to the fluctuating dollar/euro exchange rate and the high cost of living in Rome, the stipends offered may not cover all expenses. This is especially true for prize winners who come to Rome with spouses, companions and/or children.

Fellowships generally begin at the Academy in early September and end in early August. Winners of the 11-month Rome Prize fellowships may select to depart the Academy after nine months with no reduction to the fellowship stipend.

COMMENTO:

Come ogni anno, la AMERICAN ACADEMY IN ROME, una istituzione che da anni è un punto di riferimento per studiosi soprattutto nel campo dell’Arte, delle Scienze e delle materie Umanistiche, indice un concorso per 30 borse di studio da assegnare a quegli studiosi che hanno portato avanti ricerche e studi specifici di particolare valore, come è chiaramente spiegato e illustrato nel bando di concorso originale in lingua inglese.

Chi scrive conosce molto bene l’ambiente e la benemerita attività svolta da questa istituzione che opera a Roma, in una sede davvero particolare dal punto di vista logistico, ma anche storica, inserita nelle vicinanze di Porta San Pancrazio. Faccio notare che l’Accademia ha offerto spesso ospitalità a convegni e conferenze su temi pertinenti l’Arte, la Letteratura e le Scienze, con la partecipazione di emeriti studiosi internazionali.

Pertanto diventa un titolo d’onore partecipare ad un bando di concorso del genere per chi ha svolto studi e ricerche particolari. In sostanza ricevere una borsa di studio dalla American Academy in Rome vuol dire ottenere un lasciapassare per il mondo accademico internazionale.

 

NOTA BENE:

Riporto integralmente il bando di concorso in lingua inglese così come trasmesso dalla collega Sarah Court, in quanto, essendo destinato a studiosi di lingua inglese non c’è bisogno della traduzione in altre lingue.
