The records consist entirely of final and annual progress reports made up of correspondence, reports, surveys, architectural
drawings, publications, specifications, print and slide photographic documentation, CD-ROMs, video, and floppy diskettes,
dating 1985-2009, submitted to the Getty Foundation by recipients of conservation grants for the purpose of documenting the
progress and results of their grant-funded projects.
The Getty Grant Program was formally established in 1984 (announced October 11) to serve the visual arts and related humanities
by providing funding for work of exceptional merit for which resources were otherwise limited. It supports projects, internationally,
that promote research in the history of art and the humanities, the understanding of art, and conservation. In early 1985
the Grant Program had the following grant categories: library and archival projects at independent centers for advanced research
in the history of art; scholarly cataloging of art museum collections; publications; conservation; museum programs to interpret
permanent collections; education in the arts; national and international service organizations. In 1986 the Getty brought
"in-house" its postdoctoral fellowship program, which had been administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
