Addison Wheeler Fellows

Addison Wheeler Fellows

Addison Wheeler Fellowships are funded through the bequest of Addison James Wheeler to encourage ‘efforts for increased knowledge of people and their make-up so as to enable them to make better use of their life here on Earth’

Addison James Wheeler was a student at the University in the early 1900s, graduating with a degree in Divinity, including Latin and Greek, with 1st class honours degree in 1907. He followed his undergraduate studies with an MA in 1910. He was also ordained as a vicar and worked in many parishes over the years. When he died in 1967 he made an endowed  bequest to the University to fund Fellowships for early career scholars into research into science, the social sciences and other fields. The Fellowships are designed to provide researchers of outstanding promise with up to three years to pursue original ideas, free from teaching and administrative responsibilities. The Fellowship has provided almost 40 researchers the opportunity to pursue new research ideas of their own design, undertaken in collaboration within academic researchers at Durham University.
