OrvietoThe ICMA has initiated a new form of grant for graduate students in the early stages of their dissertation research.  Three grants will be awarded this year, at $3,000 each, to enable a student to travel to Europe (including the Eastern Mediterranean) to visit the monuments or museum objects or manuscripts on which the dissertation will be based.  The grant is designed to cover one month of travel. The ICMA will contact institutions and/or individuals in the area to be visited; these will help the student gain access to the relevant material and aid in other practical matters.


The grant is designed primarily for the student who has finished the preliminary exams, and is in the process of formulating a dissertation topic.  Students who have already submitted a proposal, but are still very early on in the process of their research, may also apply.

All applicants must be ICMA members. (click here to join/renew)

Applicants must submit:

  1.  Outline of the thesis proposal in 800 words or less.
  2.  Detailed outline of exactly what the student would like to see on his/her travels, and how this relates to the proposed thesis topic.

3.    Proposed budget (airfare, lodging, other travel, per diem).

  1. Letter from the thesis advisor, clarifying where the student stands in his/her graduate career, and explaining the relevance of the trip to the thesis.

Upon return, the student will be required to submit a letter and financial report to the ICMA and a narrative to the student section of the newsletter.

Applications are due by 1 March 2016. The ICMA will announce the winners of the three grants by 13 May 2016.

Please submit materials as PDF attachments to Ryan Frisinger at with “Student Travel Grant” in the subject line.

Grants and Fellowships: 2015-2016 Getty Residential Grants (Los Angeles, CA, USA)

Grants and Fellowships:
2015-2016 Getty Residential Grants
Los Angeles, CA, USA
Deadline: 3 November 2014

The Getty Research Institute and the Getty Villa invite proposals for the 2015–2016 academic year residential grants and fellowships.

Getty_Center_-_Getty_Research_Institute_(South_part)The Getty Research Institute theme, “Art and Materiality,” aims to explore how the art object and its materiality have enhanced the study of art history. Scholars, working with conservators and scientists, are gaining insight into the process of art making from raw material to finished object, as well as the strategic deployment of materials both for their aesthetic qualities and for their power to signify. The Getty Research Institute seeks proposals from scholars and fellows on these and other issues related to the materiality of art.

The Getty Villa theme, “The Classical World in Context: Egypt,” will focus on relations between the cultures of the classical world and Egypt from prehistory to the coming of Islam. Through trade, warfare, diplomacy, and other methods of exchange, these civilizations had a crucial, and often reciprocal, impact on cultural trajectories in both spheres. Priority will be given to research projects that are cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, utilizing a wide range of archaeological, textual, anthropological, and other evidence.

Deadline: November 3, 2014.

The Getty Scholars Program strongly encourages to share this information with colleagues.

Detailed application guidelines are available online at:
