Rome Scholarship 2019

The Rome Scholarship 2019

This competition opens on September 10th 2018 and closes on January 31st 2019

The Royal Society of British Artists is able to offer this major scholarship 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.

This competition is open to artists who live, work or study in the UK and who are aged 35 years or under and the Scholarship is for the month of September 2019.

The Scholarship Offers:

  • Four weeks at Sala Uno, a highly prestigious gallery and international arts centre in the heart of Rome
  • Accommodation in a self-contained apartment, situated within a wonderful and extensive walled garden in the grounds of the gallery
  • Studio space which will be available within the gallery
  • Two meals per day, provided at a nearby restaurant
  • Return flights to Rome
  • £600 prize money

Further Awards:

Twenty semi-finalists selected from the entries will have a work shown in the RBA RISING STARS Exhibition.  This will take place at the Royal Over-Seas League in Mayfair, Central London, and will run from April – June 2019

From these twenty semi-finalists, three finalists will then be invited to an interview.  The finalists will all have one work on show [and on sale] alongside the members at the RBA Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in July, and the two runners–up will each receive a prize of £250.  The President of the RBA will announce the winning candidate at the Private View

Conditions for Entry:

  • The applicant’s work needs to be figurative
  • The work may be painting, drawing, printmaking or sculpture
  • Six images of recent work to be provided together with a completed application form, see below
  • An administration fee of £10 is required with the application


  • Semi-finalists are responsible for the delivery and collection of their own works
  • It is suggested that large scale works be accompanied by smaller works as, if the artist is chosen as a semi-finalist or finalist, exhibition space will be limited and this may influence selection
  • It may be helpful for the 3 finalists to bring with them for interview any sketchbooks or journals which show their exploration of techniques or development of their ideas
