The Capitol Fellowship Program provides financial support to scholars researching important topics in the art and architectural history of the United States Capitol Complex. Fellowship support permits scholars–selected on the basis of their qualifications and research proposals–to use the extensive documents housed in the Office of the Architect of the Capitol, the Library of Congress and the National Archives. The Fellowship is funded by the United States Capitol Historical Society and jointly administered by the Architect of the Capitol.
The proposed topic must directly relate to some elements of art or architecture within the United States Capitol complex: the Capitol, the congressional office buildings, the Library of Congress buildings, the Supreme Court buildings, and the Botanic Garden. It may include studies of individual artists, architects, or other historical figures and forces. The research must involve the resources of the Architect of the Capitol, including the architectural drawings, manuscripts, and reference collections, or material on the Capitol in the Library of Congress, National Archives, or other specific collections identified in the applicant’s proposal.
