Getty Foundation Pre- and Postdoctoral Fellowships


Visit Webpage

Getty Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended for emerging scholars to complete work on projects related to the Getty Research Institute’s annual research theme. Recipients are in residence at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa, where they pursue research projects, complete their dissertations, or expand dissertation for publication. Fellows make use of the Getty collections, join in a weekly meeting devoted to the annual theme, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty.

2022/2021 Themes:

  • Art and Migration
  • African American Art History (Research Institute)

Eligibility: Applications for Getty Pre- and Postdoctoral fellowships are welcome from scholars of all nationalities.

Current Getty staff and members of their immediate family are not eligible for Pre- and Postdoctoral fellowships.

Getty Predoctoral Fellowship applicants must have advanced to candidacy by the application deadline and should expect to complete their dissertations during the fellowship period. Successful Predoctoral Fellowship applicants who are awarded their degree after the application deadline but before the fellowship begins, or who receive their doctorate while in residence, automatically become Postdoctoral Fellows. To be eligible to apply for the 2021-2022 scholar year, Postdoctoral Fellowship applicants should not have received their degree earlier than 2016.

Deadline: 10/1/2021
