Established scholars or writers who have attained distinction in their fields are invited to apply to the Getty Scholar Grants Program. Researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences are eligible to apply.

Recipients of Getty Scholar grants get to work in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa, where they pursue their own projects free from academic obligations, make use of Getty collections, join their colleagues in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual research theme, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty. Getty Scholars may be in residence for one of six periods ranging from three to nine months: September to December; January to March; April to June; September to March; January to June; or September to June.

A stipend of up to $65,000 per year will be awarded based on the scholar's length of stay, need, and salary. The grant also includes an office at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, research assistance, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, airfare to and from Los Angeles, and various healthcare options. (These terms apply as of July 2017 and are subject to future changes.)

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, visit the Getty Foundation website at http://www.getty.edu/foundation/initiatives/residential/getty_scholars.html.

The Getty Foundation fulfills the philanthropic mission of the Getty Trust by supporting individuals and institutions committed to advancing the greater understanding and preservation of the visual arts in Los Angeles and throughout the world.  For more information about the foundation, visit http://www.getty.edu/foundation/about/.
