J.P. Getty Museum
Los Angeles, CA,
USA United States of America
Museum curators may now apply for new Curatorial Research Fellowships
offered by the Getty Grant Program. Designed to support professional scholarly
development, these fellowships offer curators time off to pursue short-term research or
study projects. This year’s application deadline is November 1, 1999.
The Curatorial Research Fellowships provide stipends of $3,500 per month and up to $3,000
for travel and research materials. Although fellows are welcome to use the Getty Research
Library if their projects bring them to Los Angeles, the fellowships are nonresidential.
Scholars are offered the flexibility to pursue research wherever necessary to complete
their projects. Applicants may apply for a research period of one to three months to take
place between June 1, 2000 and September 1, 2001.
To be eligible to apply for a Curatorial Research Fellowship, curators must be employed
full-time at museums with art collections and have three years’ professional experience.
The fellowships are open to curators internationally.

projects). Additional information is available online at
