Getty Foundation Graduate Internships
1. Personal Statement: Your Personal Statement should consist of no more than 500 words (two double-spaced pages) that explains how your Getty internship choices fit with your background and career goals. Include the reasons for your choice of specific departments or programs for an internship. Also describe what you hope to achieve from the experience and what you believe you can contribute.
2. Resume/Curriculum Vitae: Current resumes are required for all applicants. Please limit resumes to five pages.
3. Transcript(s): Transcripts are required for both undergraduate and graduate degrees completed or in progress. Please be aware that you may be requested to submit hardcopies of official transcripts/academic records at a later date in the evaluation process. If you graduated from a school outside of the United States, transcripts may be substituted with proof of completed courses and/or copies of diploma(s). If you are currently enrolled in a graduate program, provide proof of current enrollment (for example, your most recent transcript or academic record). A note concerning multiple transcripts: you may upload each one individually or as a single combined document (strongly preferred).
4. Letters of Recommendation (2): Applicants must have two confidential letters of recommendation submitted directly by their recommenders. Letters must be received no later than 5:00p.m. Pacific Standard Time on December 1, 2015. Typically, the most appropriate recommenders are university faculty members who are able to address your academic performance. Other recommenders may include past or current employers of relevant work who are familiar with your skills and abilities. Recommenders will be automatically contacted via email through the application system.
