Library Research Grants
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 Research Library at the Getty Research Institute. A Library Research Grant is not a prerequisite for obtaining access to the Research Library. Projects must relate to specific items in the library collection. Library Research Grants range from $500 to $2,500, depending on distance traveled and duration of stay. The research period may range from several days to a maximum of three months.
Postdoctoral Fellowships provide support for outstanding scholars in the early stages of their careers, allowing them the flexibility to travel and study wherever necessary to undertake their work. Grants support interpretive research projects that make a substantial and original contribution to the understanding of art and its history. Candidates who hold doctoral degrees in fields outside art history are eligible to apply if they can demonstrate that their work promises to make a substantial and original contribution to the understanding of art and its history. Fellowships provide a $40,000 stipend for a twelve-month period Fellows have the flexibility to pursue their research wherever necessary to complete their projects. Although grantees are welcome to use the Getty library if their projects bring them to Los Angeles, the fellowships are nonresidential.

The Gladys Kriebel Delmas Foundation promotes the advancement and perpetucation of humanistic inquiry and artistic creativity by encouraging excellence in scholarship and in the performing arts and by supporting research libraries and other institutions.
Programmes in the following areas are eligible: history; archaeology; literature; languages, both classical and modern; philosophy; ethics; comparative religion; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which share the content and methods of humanistic disciplines. The Foundation welcomes projects that cross the boundaries between humanistic disciplines and explore the connection between the humanities and other areas of scholarship.
The Research Library Programme
The overall objective of the Research Library Program is to improve the ability of research libraries to serve the needs of scholarship in the humanities and the performing arts, and to help make their resources more widely accessible to scholars and the general public. Wherever possible, grants to libraries seek to promote cooperative cataloguing projects, with an emphasis on access to archival, manuscript, and other unique sources; some elements of interpretation and exhibition; scholarly library publications; bibliographical and publishing projects of interest to research libraries; and preservation/conservation work and research. The geographical concentration is primarily but not exclusively directed toward European and American history and letters, broadly defined. Technological developments that support humanities research and access to humanities resources are also eligible.

The Foundation’s Venetian Research Program awards four types of support:

Publication Assistance: The Foundation supports publications to help make possible the dissemination of work accomplished through our Grants for Independent Research on Venetian History and Culture.
