Killam Research Fellowships

Deadline: May 15

Additional information

Killam Research Fellowships are intended as release time from employment for established scholars who have demonstrated outstanding research ability and who have published the results of their research in substantial publications in their field. Typically, a fellowship recipient is a full professor in a Canadian university with significant teaching and/or administrative responsibilities. Researchers who are employed in settings such as a hospital or a scientific institute etc. may qualify if they demonstrate outstanding ability and their proposed project meets generally accepted standards of scholarly merit.

Killam Research Fellows are expected to continue contributing to the Canadian research community after they have completed their fellowship project. To apply, you must be a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident status, as defined by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. You do not need to be living in Canada when you apply.
