GUA Alumni: Claire Dillon

The American Academy in Rome awarded their 2024–25 Rome Prize last night during the Janet & Arthur Ross Rome Prize Ceremony and Concert, at Weill Recital Hall Carnegie Hall in New York. These highly competitive fellowships support advanced independent work and research in the arts and humanities.

The Rome Prize—the gift of “time and space to think and work”—was awarded to thirty-one American artists and scholars, who each received a stipend, workspace, room and board for five to ten months at the Academy’s eleven-acre campus in Rome, starting this September.

One of which was one of our own multi award winning Alumni, Claire Dillon - 2015 Global Winner, 2014 and 2013 Highly Commended Award Winner for Media & the Arts Categories and we would like to further congratulate her on this amazing achievement.
