Fellowships are restricted to modern and contemporary art curators and museum directors who work in emerging and developing economies (Emerging Market and Developing Economies
according to the International Monetary Fund’s World Economic Outlook Report). They include those professionals whose nationality is not from a Country listed as an emerging economy but live and work in one of these countries. Researchers and independent curators whose field of research and specialization is contemporary art theory and museums will be also eligible.
While curators of all career levels are encouraged to apply, we are especially interested in receiving applications from junior curators who have less than 10 years experience in the field. Applicants who previously received CIMAM fellowships supported by the Getty Foundation will not be considered for a new grant before 3 years.
Purpose of the Fellowships
Fellowships will exclusively relate to support the purpose for which the fund was established. The funds will be administrated by CIMAM set on a case-by-case basis. Funds will not be sent to the beneficiary directly and will not cover registration and expenses related with the post-conference tour.
The travel fellowships cover conference registration*, travel expenses (round trip economy flights only) and accommodation in one of the hotels recommended by CIMAM.
*Conference registration includes access to conference sessions and workshops, lunches and refreshment breaks, access to organized visits, coach service to and from planned visits to the conference meeting points and welcome kit.
Applications will be considered and evaluated by the CIMAM Travel Grant Committee consisting of the President of CIMAM and five Board Members together with the staff of the Getty Foundation. Fellowships will be conferred based on the assessment of the professional’s genuine financial need, and the potential benefit to her or his development and/or research.
