Olusegun Updated on
Getty Foundation is now accepting applications from researchers of all nationalities for its 2023 Scholar Grants. The deadline for the submission of applications for the Getty Foundation Scholar Grants is October 3, 2022.
The Getty Scholar Grants are for eminent scholars or those who have achieved distinction in their respective fields.
Recipients are in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa, where they pursue their own projects free of work-related obligations, use Getty collections, participate in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual research theme or the African American Art History Initiative, and contribute to the Getty’s intellectual life.
Getty Foundation Scholar Grants Eligibility
Open to researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.
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.
Getty Foundation Scholar Grants Benefits
Getty Scholars may be in residence from three to nine months:
Three-month residency: September to December, January to April: $21,500
Six-month residency: September to April, January to June: $43,000
Nine-month residency: September to June: $65,000
AAAHI and PRW Research Project Scholarships are limited to nine-month residency terms, and are granted $65,000 stipends.
