Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Residencies of $3,500 per month to USA, Canada, and International professional researchers working in the field of conservation to conduct research at the funding source's Los Angeles institution. Funding is intended to provide an opportunity for professionals to pursue scholarly research in an interdisciplinary manner across traditional boundaries in areas of interest to the international conservation community. Conservation Guest Scholar Grants support research to be undertaken while in residence at the Getty.

The Conservation Guest Scholar Program at the Getty Conservation Institute supports new ideas and perspectives in the field of conservation, with an emphasis on the visual arts (including sites, buildings, objects) and the theoretical underpinnings of the field.

Estimated Size of Grant:

A monthly stipend of $3,500 is awarded, prorated to the actual dates of residency.

In addition to the stipend, the grant also includes a workstation at the Conservation Institute, research assistance, airfare to Los Angeles, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, and health benefits.

Term of Contract:

Conservation Guest Scholars are in residence at the Getty Center for three or six consecutive months between late September and June, according to the preference indicated by the applicant on their online application and dependent upon scheduling and other issues.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications are welcome from conservators, scientists, architects, and professionals who have attained distinction in conservation and related fields. Applicants should have at least five years experience in the field of conservation and should have an established record of publications and other contributions to the field. Applications are welcome from researchers of all nationalities.

Grants are not intended to fund research for the completion of an academic degree. Nonresidential research and travel are not supported by this grant.

The GCI will consider proposals that require use of the GCI Science laboratories; however, use is dependent upon availability of lab facilities and staff time, and cannot be guaranteed. If selected, scholars should be prepared to conduct research independently.

Pre-Application Information:

The next deadline to submit an application for this grant will be November 1, 2019 (5:00 p.m. PDT).

Applicants are notified of the Getty Conservation Institute's decision in late spring.
