AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts-based institutions have been awarded nearly $260,000 in grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Boston University, Smith College and Wellesley College each received a grant of more than $50,000 under the study program for projects on poet W.H. Auden, the globalization of ballet and 18th century British literature.

Hampshire College was awarded nearly $5,800 for preservation of its library archives, which include a collection produced in part by documentarian Ken Burns, a 1975 Hampshire graduate.

The Worcester Center for Crafts received a $1,000 grant for a project "Carnaval," under the NEH On-the-Road program.

The grants were announced Monday from Washington.
