ANN: Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art

The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to invite applications for Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art. The fellowships support an academic year of research by early career scholars from around the world for projects that will make substantial and original contributions to the understanding of art and its history.  ACLS will award up to 10 fellowships for the 2023-24 academic year, each carrying a stipend of $60,000, plus $5,000 for research and travel during the award period.

Deadline: 27 October 2022

The fellowships are portable: fellows may elect to take up the award at any appropriate site for the work proposed. Awards also include a one-week residency at the Getty Research Institute following the fellowship period.  

The program welcomes applications from scholars worldwide, without restriction as to citizenship, country of residency, or employment.
