Guest Scholar grants are for established scholars, or individuals who have attained distinction in their fields. Recipients are in residence at the Getty Conservation Institute in Los Angeles, where they pursue their own projects free from work-related obligations, make use of research collections at the Getty Center and Villa, and participate with other Getty scholars, fellows, and interns in the intellectual life of the Getty.
Applications are welcome from researchers of all nationalities working in conservation, historic preservation, heritage science, and related fields. Applicants should have at least five years' experience and should have an established record of publications and other contributions to the field. Proposals for research that contributes to a PhD or other academic degree will not be considered.
The Conservation Institute will consider proposals that require use of its 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.
Deadline: November 1st, 2021.
