Dear Dr. Das Gupta:

Thank you for your letter of January 28. I am interested to learn that you would like an opportunity to do research work at Smithsonian Institution on meteorites. The Smithsonian Institution has a program of postdoctoral research fellowships, which are awarded for one year terms. These fellowships pay a stipend of $9,500, supplemented by allowances for research expenses, dependents, and travel, and are offered on a conpetitive basis. Applications for the year beginning July 1, 1970 have already closed. The deadline for applications for the year beginning July 1, 1971 is December 31, 1970. I shall ask our Office of Academic Programs to send you the necessary forms and information.

With best regards.

Sincerely yours,

Brian Mason
