Application Deadline: October 3, 2022
Applications for Getty Pre- and Postdoctoral fellowships are welcome from scholars of all nationalities.
Current Getty staff and members of their immediate family are not eligible for Pre- and Postdoctoral fellowships.
Getty Predoctoral Fellowship applicants must have advanced to candidacy by the application deadline and should expect to complete their dissertations during the fellowship period. Successful Predoctoral Fellowship applicants who are awarded their degree after the application deadline but before the fellowship begins, or who receive their doctorate while in residence, automatically become Postdoctoral Fellows.
Postdoctoral Fellowship applicants who received their degree before September 1, 2019 should apply for a Getty Scholar Grant.
Getty Predoctoral Fellowships are for nine months from late-September to late-June and receive a stipend of $30,000. Getty Postdoctoral Fellowships are for nine months from late-September to late-June and receive a stipend of $35,000. Both fellowships may provide a workspace at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, a travel stipend, and healthcare options. These terms apply as of June 2022 and the terms and length of grants are subject to change. Health and safety guidelines for grantees may also be imposed.
Applicants are notified of the Getty Research Institute’s decision approximately six months following the deadline.
All fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. Applications will be evaluated by the Getty Research Institute based on: (1) the overall quality of the application; (2) how the proposed project bears upon the annual research theme*; (3) the applicant’s past achievements; and (4) how the project would benefit from the resources at the Getty, including its library and collections.
*Applicants for the AAAHI and PRW Fellowships are not required to work on the annual theme. Rather, they should describe either (1) their focus on African American art and cultural history for the AAAHI Fellowship or (2) their focus on Williams’ life and legacy for the PRW Research Project Fellowship
