Deadline: October 3, 2022
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.
Please see important information about these grants, including healthcare, here.
Applicants are notified of the Getty Research Institute’s decision approximately six months following the deadline.
*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.
