Art historians based outside of the US might be interested to know about the new Getty Foundation International Travel Grants.
The Getty Foundation awarded a generous grant to the College Art Association to support the participation of international art historians at the CAA Centennial Conference in Los Angeles, to be held from 22-25 February 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. CAA hereby invites applications from international art historians, including artists who teach art history and art historians who serve as museum curators. Awards will support conference registration, travel, hotel accommodations, and include a per diem and a one-year membership to CAA.
The goal of the program is to increase international participation in CAA; to expand international networking and the exchange of ideas; and to familiarize international participants with the conference program, including the session participation process. Preference will be given to applicants from countries not well represented in CAA’s membership. This grant is not open to those participating in the 2012 conference as chairs, speakers, or discussants. Individuals selected for the CAA grants will be expected to attend the conference throughout its duration and participate in the activities planned in connection with the grant.
Applications should include:
· Completed copy of the application form
· A two-page version of the applicant’s CV
· One letter of support from the chairperson, dean, or director of the applicant’s school, department, or museum
· A one-page statement explaining how attending the conference will benefit the applicant’s professional career.
Deadline: 23 September 2011. Notification: 25 November.
