COMMONWEALTH FUND fellowships are being awarded in 147. These fellowships, established by the Commonwealth Fund of New York in 1918, are confined to British subjects and are tenable in the United States. Three kinds of fellowships are awarded: (1) Ordinary fellowships; (2) Service fellowships, for candidates who hold British Government appointments overseas; (3 Home Civil Service fellowships, for candidates holding appointments in the Home Civil Service. None of these fellowships is open to women. There is no fixed stipend, but the emolument attached to each fellowship, which is estimated at a minimum of approximately 3,500 dollars for twelve months, is calculated to cover the full expenses of residence, study and travel in the United States during the year. All applications must be submitted on the prescribed form, and must be approved by the authorities of the college or university of which the candidate is, or has been, a member. They must reach the Secretary to the Committee, Richard H. Simpson, Commonwealth Fund Fellowships, 35 Portman Square, London, W.I, by February 1, 1947.
