Information from Killam Program

We welcome the opportunity to speak with professors, deans and university research administrators in Canadian universities to promote the national Killam Program at the Canada Council for the Arts. The program includes the Killam Research Fellowships and the Killam Prizes.

 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.

KILLAM PRIZES: Up to five prizes of $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.
