Young landscape architects are invited by the International Federation of Landscape Architects to apply for this residency at the British School at Rome, which will offer a valuable opportunity to develop and research work within the context of Rome and Italy.
Applicants are required to put forward a contemporary response to an aspect of Italian landscape and pursue a selected topic with direct bearing on modern design in the landscape.
Details about the British School at Rome are available on their website.
The Fellowship offers:

- A grant of €750 per month for expenses
- Economy class return travel from the fellow’s current place of residence to and from Rome (open ticket)
- Health insurance for the three month residency
- Though technical facilities and support are limited, BSR staff are on hand to give advice and to assist fellows to gain access to sites not normally open to public access
Applications must be submitted in English by October 15th 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org under the title ‘APPLICATION FOR the 2012 IFLA Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe INTERNATIONAL ROME FELLOWSHIP IN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE’.
