Composers Christopher Cerrone and Nina C. Young have been named recipients of the of the 2015-2016 Rome Prize. They—along with 29 other artists and scholars in the fields of ancient studies, architecture, design, historic preservation and conservation, landscape architecture, literature, medieval studies, modern Italian studies, renaissance and early modern studies, and visual arts—will be provided with a fellowship that includes a stipend, a study or studio, and room and board for a period of six months to two years in Rome.

The winners are selected by independent juries through a national competition process, and approximately thirty individuals working in the arts and humanities are invited to Rome to expand their own professional, artistic, or scholarly pursuits, while drawing on their colleagues’ knowledge and experience and on the resources that Italy, Europe, and the academy have to offer. The annual application deadline is November 1. The academy community also includes a selected group of residents, affiliated fellows, and visiting artists and scholars.
