Getty Library Research Grants provide partial, short-term support for researchers requiring the use of specific collections housed in the Getty Research Institute (GRI). The GRI's grant budget has been generously supplemented by donations from Getty Research Institute Council members and the Getty Conservation Institute.
In addition to the open call for applications relating to projects utilizing any specific area of the GRI's collections, several focused grants will be awarded in the following areas of study:
- Research related to the modern commercial art market, Los Angeles modern architecture, or design.
- Research in the area of 18th-century German art as it relates to the religious, philosophical, and aesthetic contextualization of the Romantic movement.
- Research that utilizes the Conservation Collection, specialized research materials related to the preservation and conservation of material cultural heritage.
Library Research Grants are intended for researchers of all nationalities and at any level who demonstrate a compelling need to use materials housed in the Research Library, and whose place of residence is more than eighty miles from the Getty Center. Projects must relate to specific items in the library collection. (To search the collections, please consult the Research Library's Search Tools and Databases.)
