LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Hall Family Foundation has made a $1.46 million gift and challenge grant to the University of Kansas to support the humanities.

The university said in a news release Wednesday that $468,800 of the gift will be used for fellowships for four incoming humanities doctoral students. A $1 million challenge grant, when matched, will be used for endowed fellowships for mid-career faculty members in the humanities.

Both fellowships will be administered by university's Hall Center for the Humanities.

The Kansas Endowment is seeking donors to establish four fellowship endowments to qualify for the matching funds for the $1 million challenge grant.
