Following a recent strategic planning process and in anticipation of our 25th-year anniversary in 2009, the Getty Foundation has revised its funding priorities and strategies in the area of conservation.
Our general approach is to shift resources from our ongoing grant categories to more targeted special initiatives focused on a specific issue or region, and carried out in collaboration with the other Getty programs--the Getty Museum, Getty Research Institute, and Getty Conservation Institute.
We have recently launched two new Special Initiatives in conservation focused on panel paintings and on mosaics in the Mediterranean region. Information on these initiatives will be available on our redesigned website later this year.
With regard to our support for the conservation of works of art and conservation training, we are currently working to redefine the programs that we will offer in these areas. At this time we are not accepting inquiries in these areas and ask that you check back on our website in early 2009 for news and developments.
NOTE: The final grants for this initiative were awarded in 2007.
Campus Heritage Grants were designed to assist colleges and universities in the United States with the preservation of their significant historic buildings, sites, and landscapes.
Please note that Architectural Conservation Grants and Museum Conservation Surveys are no longer being offered. For information on this and other changes in the Foundation's funding priorities, see Message from the Director.
