Abbey fellowship scholarship for painters


Named for painter Edwin Austin Abbey (1852-1911), the Abbey Fellowships and Scholarships offer all expense paid residencies to United States and British artists to study painting at the British School at Rome, Italy. The Abbey Council administers the awards. Scholarships are usually given for nine months to emerging painters, and Fellowships are awarded for three months to mid-career painters. Among the recipients are Sidney Simon, Marta Marce, Roxy Walsh and Des Lawrence. (See British School at Rome) Sources: IIEPASSPORT Study Abroad Funding;
