Bourses offertes par le Getty pour participer au CAA de Los Angeles (22-25 février 2012)

Travel Grant for participating to the CAA Conference, February 22–25, 2012,  Los Angeles

The Getty Foundation has awarded CAA a generous one-time $100,000 grant to support the attendance and participation of international art historians at the 100th Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration, taking place February 22–25, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. The goal of the Getty Foundation International Travel Grant 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.

Through the grant program, CAA will provide funds to twenty applicants for travel expenses, hotel accommodations, per diems, and conference registrations. Recipients will also receive one-year CAA memberships. Applicants may be art historians, artists who teach art history, and art historians who are museum curators. Those from developing countries or from nations not well represented in CAA’s membership are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants do not need to be CAA members. This grant program is not open to those participating in the 2012 conference as chairs, speakers, or discussants.

Grant recipients will be expected to attend the conference throughout its duration and participate in mentoring activities and other events planned in connection with the grant. Members of CAA’s International Committee have agreed to host the participants, and the National Committee for the History of Art will also lend support to the program.

Twenty applicants will be chosen by a jury. CAA will notify all applicants about their status by November 15, 2011. Applicants who are CAA members may also apply for the CAA International Member Conference Travel Grant but can only receive a single award; graduate students may not apply for the Getty grant.
