About the Organization

Getty is a leading global arts organization committed to exhibiting, conserving, and understanding the world’s artistic and cultural heritage.

Today, the J. Paul Getty Trust is one of the world’s largest cultural and philanthropic institutions dedicated to the visual arts. Our work continues to advance the presentation, conservation, and interpretation of the world’s artistic legacy.

About the Program

The Getty Scholars Program supports innovative research about art, conceived in the broadest terms, and its histories, by providing a locus for international scholars to forge collaborations across disciplines and professional practices, while also developing new audiences for their work. During their residency, the scholar cohort is immersed in a vibrant local community devoted to the advancement of knowledge and hosted at an institution committed to preserving, understanding, interpreting, and sharing its vast library and collections. Scholars may be in residence at the Getty Center or Getty Villa.

Since 1985, the Getty Scholars Program has hosted around 1,300 residential scholars from over fifty countries to conduct research on topics related to the annual theme while residing in Los Angeles. Selected projects have spanned geographical regions and time periods, from ancient to contemporary eras. Getty receives between 300 and 400 applications each year and awards fellowships to about twenty applicants annually.


Scholar Grant recipients at the Getty Center may be in residence from three to nine months and receive varying stipends as detailed below*:

  • Three-month residency: September–December/January–March; $21,500 stipend
  • Six-month residency: September–March/January–June; $43,000 stipend
  • Nine-month residency: September–June; $65,000 stipend

Recipients also receive a relocation stipend of $2,000.


  • Scholar Grant applicants should have received a PhD before September 1, 2021. Applicants from associated fields who do not hold a PhD but have commensurate professional experience will also be considered.
  • Applicants who received their degree after September 1, 2021 should apply for a Postdoctoral Fellowship.
  • After a waiting period of six years, previous Getty Residential Grant recipients in any category are eligible to reapply for another grant in whichever category they are eligible for and interested in. See FAQs for more information.
