Deadline extended! Applications now due Thursday, August 29, 2019, (11:59 PM EDT) 

The CAA-Getty International Program, generously supported by the Getty Foundation, provides funding to between fifteen and twenty art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend CAA’s Annual Conferences. The goal of the project is to increase international participation in CAA, to diversify the association’s membership, and to foster collaborations between North American art historians, artists, and curators and their international colleagues. 


The 2020 CAA-Getty International Program will support fifteen art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend the 108th CAA Annual Conference in Chicago from February 12-15, 2020. The grant covers travel expenses, hotel accommodations for eight nights, per diems, conference registrations, and one-year CAA memberships. The program includes a one-day preconference colloquium on international issues in art history on February 11, at which grant recipients will present and discuss their common professional interests and issues. The grant will also fund five alumni from the CAA-Getty International Program to participate in the preconference colloquium and speak at a session during the conference.  


Applicants must be practicing art historians who teach at a university or work as a curator in a museum, or artists who teach art history. They must have a good working knowledge of English, be able to obtain a visa to travel to the United States, and be available to participate in CAA events. Only professionals who have not attended a CAA conference previously, and who are from countries underrepresented in CAA’s membership are eligible to apply. The grant excludes scholars from North America, Western Europe, Israel, and Australia, whose countries are well represented in CAA.  It further excludes scholars who have received funds from American foundations or research institutes to participate in conferences or residencies in the United States. Applicants do not need to be CAA members. This grant program is not open to graduate students or to those participating in the CAA conference as chairs, speakers, or discussants. 


All application materials must be received by Thursday, August 29, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT.
