Tell Me About The Getty Foundation Scholar Grants for Researchers:

The Getty Scholars Program supports innovative research about art in its broadest sense and its histories. It provides a place for international scholars to collaborate across disciplines and professional practices, while also reaching new audiences for their work. During their residency, scholars are immersed in a vibrant local community dedicated to advancing knowledge and are hosted at an institution committed to preserving, understanding, interpreting, and sharing its extensive library and collections. Scholars may reside at either the Getty Center or Getty Villa. A mix of senior scholars and junior fellows are selected for the Scholars Program cohort. The cohort’s research projects are focused on an annual theme. The three main grant categories are:

  • Scholar Grants for established researchers and professionals who have held PhDs for at least 5 years and/or possess strong records of publication and professional activity, at the Getty Center or Getty Villa
  • Postdoctoral Fellowships for recently granted PhDs at the Getty Center or Getty Villa
  • Predoctoral Fellowships for PhD candidates at the Getty Center
