What is this award?
The Killam Research Fellowships provide support to scholars of exceptional ability by granting them time to pursue research projects of broad significance and widespread interest within the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, or studies linking any of these disciplines.
Who created this award?
These awards, which are among the most distinguished research fellowships in Canada, were established by the Killam Trusts by means of a gift and bequest from Mrs. Dorothy J. Killam in memory of her husband, Izaak Walton Killam, and his outstanding achievements.
