The 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.

Instructions, application forms, and additional information are available online in the “How to Apply” section of the Getty Foundation website. The 2016–17 Conservation Guest Scholar program application deadline is November 3, 2015.
