LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The Hall Family Foundation has donated $2.7 million to support research at the University of Kansas' Hall Center of Humanities.

The Kansas University Endowment Association announced the latest gift from the Hall family on Monday. It said the donation will fund a new distinguished professorship and create two new research fellowships at the center.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/13V3RCO ) $500,000 of the donation will be used to attract a leading researcher to the new distinguished professorship.

Another $1 million will create a postdoctoral fellowship for a researcher in digital humanities, and another $1 million will create a mid-career fellowship.
