Getty Pre- and Postdoctoral Fellowships
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 2020-2021 scholar year, Postdoctoral Fellowship applicants should not have received their degree earlier than 2016.
Getty Predoctoral Fellows are in residence for nine months from late-September to late-June and receive a stipend of $25,000. Getty Postdoctoral Fellows are in residence for nine months from late-September to late-June and receive a stipend of $30,000. Both fellowships also provide a workspace at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, airfare to and from Los Angeles, and makes healthcare options available. These terms apply as of June 2019 and are subject to future changes.
