The fellows are studying in the US, Canada and Italy

Both organisations are US-based, with Getty in California and ACLS in New York, but the fellowships are not residential, and are designed “to encourage diverse, international perspectives”.

“As our collaboration with ACLS continues, we hope to further expand our reach”

The fellowship is worth $60,000 plus $5,000 for research and travel expenses. The “ultimate goal” of the fellowship is described as a “major piece of scholarly work by the applicant”.

The 10 fellowships are spread across three nations, with students who are studying in the US, Canada and Italy. However, the nationality of the students receiving the fellowships increases the international breadth of the awards. The fellows include Art History researchers from Iran and and Turkey, as well as the US and Italy.

Talking to The PIE News, Deborah Marrow, director of the Getty Foundation, said the international perspective was “vital” to both the mission of theJ. Paul Getty Trust, and the postdoctoral fellowships program.

This [international] approach is vital because it allows our audiences to better understand and appreciate the complex, diverse, and important historical and artistic connections across cultures and borders,” she said. 

Marrow made it clear that the fellowship program, and Getty’s relationship with the ACLS, is just beginning, and therefore the Foundation hopes to be able to expand the program in the future.

“As our collaboration with ACLS continues, we hope to further expand our reach and welcome fellows from many other parts of the world. It is this international diversity that will bring new and exciting scholarship to the field of art history,” she said.
