The Getty Foundation<http://www.getty.edu/foundation/> fulfills the philanthropic mission of the Getty Trust by supporting individuals and institutions committed to advancing the greater understanding and preservation of the visual arts in Los Angeles and around the world. The foundation also works to strengthen art history as a global discipline, promote the interdisciplinary practice of conservation, increase access to museum and archival collections, and develop current and future leaders in the visual arts.
To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for the Getty Scholar Grants program. Through the program, residencies at the Getty Research Institute or Getty Villa will be awarded to established scholars or writers so that they can pursue a project free from academic obligations.

The grant also includes an office at the Getty Research Institute or the Getty Villa, an apartment in the Getty scholar housing complex, airfare to and from Los Angeles, and available healthcare option. Scholars also will have the opportunity to make use of Getty collections, join their colleagues in a weekly meeting devoted to an annual research theme, and participate in the intellectual life of the Getty.
Applications are welcome from researchers of all nationalities who are working in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.

Andrew W. Mellon Foundation issues Call for National Playwright Residency Program
AUGUST 18, 2019
Deadline: September 12, 2019 (Statements of Intent)
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmellon.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ced73f536b0734410eabf08d72be44683%7Cf3308007477c4a70888934611817c55a%7C0%7C0%7C637026131736431411&sdata=deg7l173y4UBLYzHIh5JKc%2B88Jm5LM%2BWfVnb4yqXZoY%3D&reserved=0>, in collaboration with HowlRound Theatre Commons<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fhowlround.com%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ced73f536b0734410eabf08d72be44683%7Cf3308007477c4a70888934611817c55a%7C0%7C0%7C637026131736441399&sdata=JTAnUeqILKXcr%2FwkNgczQL35N8O5HQ%2B4J14STkU6NpQ%3D&reserved=0> at Emerson College, established the National Playwright Residency Program<https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fhowlround.com%2Fresidencies&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ced73f536b0734410eabf08d72be44683%7Cf3308007477c4a70888934611817c55a%7C0%7C0%7C637026131736441399&sdata=%2Buz48vQx3NYW5i5MTEmed6W1QkIAKu8DAXEU09nn4tw%3D&reserved=0> (NPRP) in 2013. The program provides three years of salary, benefits, and a flexible research and development fund to a diverse group of American playwrights at select theaters around the country. More than a standard residency, the foundation conceived NPRP as an intervention into the traditional relationship between artists and institutions, and as a way of reimagining what institutions might look like when artists’ voices are at their core.
The program has four primary goals: 1) to advance the field of American playwrighting by providing playwrights with space, time, resources, and greater access to the institutions in which they work; 2) to influence the working environment of theaters by embedding playwrights in them; 3) to generate public value through the interaction of playwrights with local artistic and civic communities; and 4) to document and disseminate program findings to benefit the field.
Residencies will be selected through an open-application process. Theaters and playwrights must apply jointly by submitting statements of intent from the playwright and artistic director; a scope of work; and other specified materials that demonstrate the playwright’s eligibility, potential to achieve the goals of the program, and desire to participate in a growing network focused on advancing artist-centered practices in the theater field.
Playwright compensation and benefits will be covered by grant funds based on the salary structure of the host institution up to a maximum salary and benefits of $130,000 in the first year of the grant. Resident playwrights also will receive access to discretionary development funds and opportunities for developmental workshops hosted by HowlRound at Emerson College, while theaters will receive modest funds to support administrative expenses associated with hosting and documenting the residency. In the two prior rounds of the program, Mellon was able to offer a single three-year renewal with the mutual agreement of the playwright, theater, and foundation.
Applications must be received no later than Thursday, September 12 at 5:00 p.m. ET. A peer review panel will recommend a group of potential theater and playwright partners for consideration in early November, and the foundation will issue invitations for the recommended group to submit supplemental materials to complete their applications. If approved by the foundation’s trustees at their March 2020, residencies would commence as of July 1, 2020.
See the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation website for additional information, including complete eligibility criteria for both playwrights and theaters and application instructions.
