The Killam Program of the Canada Council for the Arts: Killam Research Fellowships

These awards, which are administered by the Canada Council, provide support  to scholars of exceptional ability who are engaged in research projects of broad significance and widespread interest. The awards honour the memory and exceptional achievements of Mrs. Dorothy J. Killam’s husband, Izaak Walton Killam.

The Killam Research Fellowships are funded through lifetime and testamentary gifts to the Canada Council from Mrs. Killam. The fellowships are awarded annually, on a competitive basis, to support scholars doing research in any of the following fields:

• humanities
• social sciences
• natural sciences
• health sciences
• engineering
• interdisciplinary studies within these fields.

The Canada Council does not wish to specify or exclude any areas of research at this time.

The fellowships provide two years of release time from teaching and administrative duties to individual scholars who wish to pursue independent research. The fellowships are awarded to individuals, but the funds are paid to and administered by universities or research institutes.
