Bonnie Wheeler Summer Research Fellowship for Women Medievalists

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 reapply.

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.

Application Procedure: Please see the Application Instructions on the website ( for details.
