University of Calgary

The University of Calgary offers more than 160 degrees across 65 graduate programs and is ranked in the top 200 universities in the world.  Its current vision is to be recognized as one of Canada’s top five research universities by 2022.

When UCalgary officially separated from the University of Alberta in 1966, a special provision was made to allow the University of Calgary to take 1/3 of the Killam bequest along with them.

As of today, the Canada Council has awarded four Killam Prizes –Natural Sciences (1), Health Sciences (1), and Engineering (2) – and 11 Killam Research Fellowships to researchers of the University of Calgary.
