Getty Foundation Announces International Fellowships

California: The Getty Foundation, which exists to “advance the understanding of visual arts”, has announced the recipients of its inaugural Art History international fellowships, which it is running in conjunction with the American Council of Learned Societies.

Though both Getty and American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) are US- based, the fellowships are not residential. As per the universities' joint statement, the fellowships are designed "to encourage diverse,  international perspectives".

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 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”.

“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.
