Description: Getty Scholar Grants are for established scholars, or individuals who have attained distinction in their fields. Recipients may be in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa, where they pursue their own projects free from work-related obligations, make use of Getty collections, join their colleagues in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual research theme or the African American Art History Initiative, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty. See website for more info.
Award: Getty Scholars may be in residence from three to nine months. Three-month residency (Sept.-Dec., Jan.-Apr., Apr.-June): $21,500; six-month residency (Sept.-Apr., Jan.-June): $43,000; and nine-month residency (Sept.-June): $65,000. Residential grants also include an office at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, airfare to and from Los Angeles, and an available healthcare option.
Eligibility: Applications are welcome from researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. Applicants who received their degree after Sept. 1, 2017 should apply for a postdoctoral fellowship. Current Getty staff and members of their immediate family are not eligible for Scholar Grants. Recent recipients who have received a Getty Scholar award within the past three years may be removed from consideration.
Deadline: 5 pm PT, Oct. 1, 2021
