ACLS is now accepting applications for 2019-20 Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art. The fellowships support an academic year of research and/or writing by early career scholars from around the world for a project that will make a substantial and original contribution to the understanding of art and its history.

ACLS will award up to 10 fellowships for the 2020-21 academic year, each carrying a stipend of $60,000, plus $5,000 for research and travel during the award period. Fellowships are portable and may be held while at the fellow’s home institution, abroad, or at any appropriate site or sites for the work proposed. Awards also include a one-week residence at the Getty Research Institute following the fellowship period.

The program encourages diverse, international perspectives and welcomes applications from scholars worldwide, without restriction as to citizenship, country of residency, or employment.

The deadline for applications is October 23, 2019, 9 pm EDT. More information about the program, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, is available here. Questions may be directed to
