Administered by the independent Dallas Foundation, a 501 (C) (3) tax-deductible charity, the fund aims to reach an ultimate endowed base of $3.2 million. In reasonable times, this will generate some $120,000 in net annual income, enabling the Fellowship to support two scholars annually. This Fellowship is completely independent of Southern Methodist University, where Dr. Wheeler has taught since 1975 and has served as Director of the Medieval Studies Program since 1978.

The initial Fellowship Committee raised almost $250,000 when, in May 2009, Dr. Wheeler was surprised and honored with announcement of the Fellowship at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies. Since then, the fund has grown to allow us to offer a more generous stipend to one recipient per year. You can honor Bonnie and support the next generation, by making a contribution.


The Bonnie Wheeler Fellowship Fund is an endowed fund of The Dallas Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
