Conservation Guest Scholars
The Conservation Guest Scholars Program provides opportunities for professionals to pursue research on topics that bring new knowledge and fresh perspectives to the field of conservation.
Guest Scholar grants are for established scholars or individuals who have attained distinction in their field. Recipients are in residence at the Getty Conservation Institute in Los Angeles for either a three-month or six-month residency, in which they pursue their own projects free from work-related obligations, make use of research collections at the Getty Center and Getty Villa, and participate with other Getty scholars, fellows, and interns in the intellectual life of the Getty.
The application period typically opens in the autumn for residencies beginning the following academic year. Read full details about the program including eligibility, terms, review process, and how to apply.
