The Bonnie Wheeler Fellowship was created when some fellow medievalists at scholarly institutions in North America joined with former students and friends of this beloved professor to develop a valuable way to honor her as she enters the fourth decade of her distinguished teaching career.

The Fellowship began to take shape under the leadership of an expanded Advisory Committee. The Dallas Foundation was selected as administrator of the Fellowship fund. Dr. Wheeler learned about the Fellowship for the first time in May 2009 when she was honored at the International Congress on Medieval Studies with the announcement of this fund's genesis as well as the news that a festschrift (a collection of scholarly essays) would be published in her honor. Magistra Doctissima: Essays in Honor of Bonnie Wheeler was published in 2013.
