Applications for 2015 will be accepted from 1st September to 31st December 2014, with interviews to follow in January 2015.

As a result of a generous bequest from the late Mr. G H Benn in memory of his late wife Marianne Von Werther, a former member of the RBA, we are able to offer an annual scholarship to spend one month at the British School in Rome in July of each year. The main emphasis for this award is that the applicants should demonstrate a high standard in draftsmanship. Subject to Council approval, selected samples of work resulting from the stay in Rome may be shown at the annual exhibition.

The Award offers:

  • Four weeks at the British School in Rome [in July]
  • Return flight
  • Comfortable accommodation in a study bedroom
  • Half board - breakfast and evening meal provided

Conditions for entry:

  • The applicants’ work needs to be figurative [i.e. we are unable to consider conceptual or abstract work]
  • The applicants need to be in their final year or recently graduated
  • Six images of recent work to be provided, either by email or on a CD

Full details of how to apply for the Rome Scholarship can be found via this application form.

Applications for 2015 will be accepted from 1st September to 31st December 2014, with interviews to follow in January 2015.
