Getty Library Research Grants provide partial, short-term support for costs relating to travel and living expenses to scholars whose research requires use of specific collections housed in the Getty Research Institute.
Library Research Grants are intended for scholars 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.
The research period may range from several days to a maximum of three months. These terms apply as of July 2014 and are subject to future changes.
Grants range from $500 to $2,500, depending on the distance traveled.
