General Information

The Center for Italian Studies at Penn awards the Amici Prize, established in 1993, for a research project in Italian Studies to be conducted by a Penn undergraduate student as part of the Penn Summer in Florence program.

The awarded sum is up to $3,000. Applicants can propose a project in any field of Italian Studies with the support of a faculty advisor at Penn. The project can originate from a class or be independent from it; it can be developed during an independent study but can also be pursued outside it. The outcome, which can take a variety of forms (paper, video, blog etc.), will be shared with other Penn undergraduates, in ways arranged and coordinated by the Undergraduate Chair in Italian, together with the advisor.

Application Details

Applicants should send, via e-mail, a detailed project proposal (600 to 1200 words) including a title, a description, an approximate budget, and a rough timeline for completion. The instructor/advisor will send, separately, his or her confidential letter of recommendation. Please submit these documents as Word or PDF file attached to a message with subject “Amici Prize 2023” and addressed to Prof. Ann Moyer, Director, Center for Italian Studies, at:
