Conservation Training Program Grants are focused on strengthening the institutions that provide conservation training.
Nonprofit institutions that offer graduate degree programs in conservation training integrating the history of art, science, and conservation practice may request funds to augment the institution's training capabilities. Eligible grant expenses may include support for visiting faculty, purchase of equipment or resource materials, and library acquisitions.
The first step in applying for a Conservation Training Program Grant is to submit a preliminary letter of inquiry to determine eligibility. The letter (maximum two pages) should include the following:
- a brief description of the institution requesting funding;
- a brief description of the activities for which funding is being requested;
- a brief description of the importance of these activities to the institutions involved;
- a brief description of the qualifications of the personnel who will be involved in the project;
- an estimate of the amount of financial support to be requested from the Getty Foundation; and
- a brief explanation of the nonprofit, charitable, or tax-exempt status of the organization.
If the project is eligible for grant consideration, the organization will be asked to submit a formal application and will be sent the necessary application forms.
