The GCI Conservation Guest Scholar program provides an opportunity for conservation leaders to pursue research that advances conservation practice and contributes new ideas to the field. Successful candidates are in residence at the Getty Center for periods of three, six, or nine months and are chosen by a professional committee through a competitive process.
