 	The National Endowment for the Humanities announces the competition
 for Fellowships for 2003-2004. These Fellowships provide opportunities
 for individuals to pursue advanced research in the humanities. Applicants
 may be faculty or staff members of colleges or universities or of primary
 or secondary schools. Scholars and writers working independently, in
 institutions such as museums, libraries, and historical associations, or
 in institutions with no connection to the humanities, also are eligible to
 	NEH Fellowships support a variety of activities. Projects may
 contribute to scholarly knowledge, to the advancement of teaching, or to
 the general public understanding of the humanities. Award recipients

 broad topic, an archaeological site report, a translation, an edition, a
 database, or some other scholarly tool.
