The deadline for the Bonnie Wheeler Summer Research Fellowship for 2014 is January 31, 2014. The fellowship is designed to support the research of women medievalists below the rank of full professor. The $10,000 award is to be used during the period of June 1–December 31, 2014.
Eligibility: Applicants must be women who hold a Ph.D. in any area of
medieval studies and who are full-time faculty in an academic department
in the U.S. Preference will be given to candidates who are “caught in
the middle” in the promotion ladder, as described
in the MLA report “Standing Still: The Associate Professor Survey.”
Budgets for Fellowship applications should include not only research
costs, but also the costs of freeing up applicants’ time--for example,
relief from summer teaching, daycare and/or eldercare
expenses, and the like. Candidates from previous years are welcome to
Mentoring: A special feature of the Fellowship is that it will connect the recipient with a mentor in her scholarly field.
Timetable: The application period is from October 1, 2013 through
January 31, 2014. Completed applications must be received no later than
January 31, 2014. The award will be announced February 28, 2014.
