American Council of Learned Societies: Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art (early career)

ACLS invites applications for Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art, made possible by the generous support of the Getty Foundation. These fellowships provide early career scholars from around the world time to undertake sustained research and/or writing for projects that will make substantial and original contributions to the understanding of art and its history. The program funds projects at all stages of development, and the ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. This program does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects.

Getty and ACLS share a commitment to fostering greater diversity within the academy and we ask reviewers to take diversity, equity, and inclusion as serious considerations. We are especially interested in supporting promising scholars who bring perspectives and backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in the field of art history, and who were trained at and/or affiliated with institutions from all regions of the world.

ACLS will award 10 fellowships, each with a stipend of $60,000, plus $5,000 for research and travel during the award period. The fellowships are portable: a fellow may elect to take up the award at any appropriate site for the work proposed, anywhere in the world.

Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
