Getty Research Institute Residential Scholar Grants

Getty Research Institute

Deadline: October 1, 2024


The Getty Research Institute is pleased to announce that the 2025-2026 application for residential grants and fellowships for pre-docs, post-docs, and scholars is open as of July 1, 2024.

Applications are due by October 1, 2024 at 5pm PT.

For 2025–2026, Getty invites scholars and arts professionals to apply for a residential fellowship on the topic of repair, a theme that bridges time periods, world geographies, and professional practices. Situated between the forces of creation and destruction, the act of repair can be deeply transformative, with the potential to heal, alter, and renew the material environment. Scholars are asked to think critically about repair, questioning interpretive assessments about the ideal state of any object or site, in addition to querying what constitutes damage or whether to repair the ruined or the broken. Beyond such physical interventions, art and sites of commemoration are often mobilized to heal a fractured social fabric. Indeed, art itself may be offered as reparation to address past wrongs or to recuperate loss. The issue of repair has deep bearing for the arts, conceived in the broadest sense, and especially for institutions that aim to preserve and share global cultural heritage.

Under the umbrella of the annual theme, dedicated grants are available via the African American Art History Initiative (AAAHI)
