The Paideia Institute Rome Fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding recent graduates and graduate students in Classics or related fields. Fellows are given the opportunity to live in Rome for a year in order to deepen their knowledge of the city and its culture, learn the Italian language, and gain teaching experience in Paideia’s programs.
Each fellow receives round-trip airfare to Rome, a homestay with an Italian family (with meals provided), health insurance, and a monthly stipend. Fellows also have the option to participate tuition-free in one of the Institute’s programs, Living Latin in Paris.
Fellows are selected on the basis of academic merit, professional and interpersonal skills, and potential as future teachers and leaders in the humanities.
