The Getty Scholars Program supports innovative research about art, conceived in the broadest terms, and its histories, by providing a locus for international scholars to forge collaborations across disciplines and professional practices, while also developing new audiences for their work. During their residency, the scholar cohort is immersed in a vibrant local community devoted to the advancement of knowledge and hosted at an institution committed to preserving, understanding, interpreting, and sharing its vast library and collections. Scholars may be in residence at the Getty Center or  Getty Villa.

Eligibility Criteria

Scholar Grant applicants should have received a PhD before September 1, 2021. Applicants from associated fields who do not hold a PhD but have commensurate professional experience will also be considered.

Applicants who received their degree after September 1, 2021 should apply for a  Postdoctoral Fellowship.

After a waiting period of six years, previous Getty Residential Grant recipients in any category are eligible to reapply for another grant in whichever category they are eligible for and interested in. See  FAQs for more information.
