The Getty Foundation:

Through grants to individuals and institutions, the Getty Foundation
supports a diverse range of projects throughout the world that
strengthen the understanding and preservation of the visual arts.
Core program areas focus on scholarship in the history of art,
conservation of art and architecture, and education and professional

Museum Conservation Grants:

Museum Conservation Grants assist institutions in caring for their
permanent collections. Grants are available for Collection Surveys
and for Conservation Treatment. Survey Grants support projects that
are designed to analyze and assess conservation requirements of
permanent art collections and to formulate plans for their
appropriate care and preservation. Conservation Treatment Grants
support the conservation of works of art of outstanding artistic
significance that are part of a museum's permanent collection.
Projects that have a substantial research component and that reveal
new information regarding materials, manufacture, or historic
context are particularly encouraged.

Professional Development Grants:

Professional Development Grants are intended to allow institutions
to provide opportunities for conservation professionals to acquire
new skills, particularly conservators from countries where relevant
training is not readily available. Grants are awarded only to
institutions and not to individuals. Museums with established
conservation departments, regional conservation centers, and other
nonprofit institutions may request support to host conservation
professionals for specialized training opportunities. Conservators
participating in the program must be employed full-time by nonprofit
institutions, or must demonstrate a commitment to a career in
conservation caring for public collections.
