First, beginning with the third annual Fellowship award for 2013, the stipend amount has been increased from $7,000 to $10,000. This has been made possible by continued donor support and wise investing by The Dallas Foundation.
Equally of interest to prospective applicants: the current Wheeler Fellow, Prof. Lois Huneycutt (see more about her below), was able to use her award to leverage further financial support from her home institution. We encourage all applicants to consider this strategy.
Finally, the initial success of the Fellowship and the strength and number of applicants has led prior donors Don and Norma Stone to make a most generous new pledge of $10,000. More pledges like theirs will enable us in future to offer more than one Fellowship per year. See the “Donate” page for further information.
