Getty Library Research Grants provide partial, short-term support for costs relating to travel and living expenses to scholars whose research requires use of specific collections housed in the Getty Research Institute. Grants range from $500 to $2,500 and are intended to defray the costs of travel and living while at the Institute.
Competition is open to scholars of any nationality and at any level who demonstrate a compelling need to use materials housed in the Research Library, and whose place of residence is more than 80 miles from the Getty Center. Projects must relate to specific items in the library collection.
The research period supported may range from three days to three months, but must fall within the year after the grant is made.
