Faculty Fellows Program

SAI offers this opportunity as an additional benefit to SAI affiliation for faculty to broaden their teaching and scholarship activities in Italy. No knowledge of Italian language is required. The award includes international air travel and a private studio or one bedroom apartment accommodation for one month (four consecutive weeks) in Florence or Rome. Faculty who wish to have family or friends accompany them may be subject to an additional housing fee.

The purposes of the Faculty Fellows Program are to foster a deeper connection between faculty from affiliate schools and Italian institutions and to provide opportunities to faculty for continuing their research and studies. In addition to pursuing individual research interests, the Faculty Fellow may be asked to deliver one lecture in their area of study for the SAI program in Florence or Rome. Proposed topics should be submitted as part of the application. The fellowship is individually designed, based on the faculty’s needs and interests.
