Killam information session

An information session regarding both the Killam Research Fellowships and Killam Prize is scheduled for Friday, March 23 from 1:30-3 p.m. in room A-1043 in the Arts and Administration Building on the St. John's Campus

The Canada Council for the Arts will be providing information and advice on the two prestigious honours. The session will include an interactive presentation covering eligibility and application requirements for both programs as well as a question and answer period. 

Killam Research Fellowships

Killam Research Fellowships are offered on a competitive basis to support distinguished Canadian researchers, normally full professors in Canadian universities, in any of the following broad fields: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering and studies linking any of the disciplines within these broad fields. Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada may hold the fellowships.

They are “release time” fellowships, which provide two years of full release from teaching and administrative duties.

The fellowship funds are paid to the university or research institute that employs the fellow to relieve him or her of all teaching and administrative responsibilities while continuing to pay the fellow’s full salary and benefits during the entire period of the fellowship. 

More information is available online.

Killam Prizes

Up to five Killam Prizes, valued at $100,000 each, are given annually to eminent Canadian scholars in recognition of distinguished career achievement in the natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities respectively. Nominees must be Canadian citizens.

More information is available online.

The session is being hosted by the Office of the Vice-President (Research).
