The Getty Conservation Institute welcomes 9 new residents in its Conservation Guest Scholars program.

The program, now in its 23rd year, provides opportunities for established scholars or individuals who have attained distinction in their field to pursue research on topics that bring new knowledge and fresh perspectives to the field of conservation.

Recipients are in residence at the Conservation Institute for either a three-month or six-month term, in which they pursue their own projects free from work-related obligations, make use of research collections at the Getty Center and Getty Villa, and participate with other Getty scholars, fellows, and interns in the intellectual life of Getty.
