The French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici, through its partnerships with the creative, theory and history of art faculties of various universities, hosts young foreign students and researchers for medium-term sojourns (from 1 to 4 months depending on the disciplines). These artists and researchers come from faculties of postgraduate creative studies or PhD and post-doctoral history of art studies.

The French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici provides housing to the fellows who will be remunerated by local partners (and eventually also by the Institute). In some cases students who are staying at the French Academy of Rome receive a diploma or a certificate, depending on the specific procedures of each discipline. This possibility is gradually being extended to all disciplines.
