Booth Family Rome Prize Fellowship for Historic Preservation and Conservation at the American Academy in Rome

The American Academy in Rome is one of the leading American overseas centers for independent study and advanced research in the fine arts and the humanities. Rome Prize Fellowships are awarded to qualified applicants through a higher competition process.

These awards are intended to serve a broad range of individuals who work in those areas of the arts and humanities in which the Academy gives fellowships, from the conservation of works of art, to architectural design, to public policy in the management of cities.

The Booth Family Rome Prize Fellowship for Historic Preservation and Conservation was established in 2003 by Suzanne Deal Booth and David G. Booth.
