O'Neill was awarded the academy's Andrew Heiskell/National Endowment for the Humanities Post-Doctoral Rome Prize Fellowship. He will receive a $20,000 research stipend and spend a year at the American Academy in Rome. He will do research on local neighborhoods of Rome, looking at sites of social interaction in the period 133 to 44 B.C.
