Getty Foundation Accepting Applications for Scholars Grant Program
Getty Foundation

The Getty Foundation fulfills the philanthropic mission of the Getty Trust by supporting individuals and institutions committed to advancing the greater understanding and preservation of the visual arts in Los Angeles and around the world. Through strategic grant initiatives, it strengthens art history as a global discipline, promotes the interdisciplinary practice of conservation, increases access to museum and archival collections, and develops current and future leaders in the visual arts. And it carries out this work in collaboration with other Getty programs to ensure that, individually and collectively, they achieve maximum effect.

To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Getty Scholar Grants Program from established scholars or writers who have attained distinction in their fields.

Getty Scholars will be in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa, where they will pursue their own projects free from academic obligations, make use of Getty collections, join their colleagues in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual research theme, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty. Scholars may be in residence for one of six periods ranging from three to nine months: September to December; January to March; April to June; September to March; January to June; or September to June.

A stipend of up to $65,000 per year will be awarded based on length of stay, need, and salary. The grant also includes an office at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, research assistance, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, airfare to and from Los Angeles, and healthcare options. These terms apply as of July 2015 and are subject to future changes.

Researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences are eligible to apply.
