Dorothy Killam Fellowships

In 2022, the National Research Council assumed the administration and delivery of the National Killam Program. Following the transition, the Killam Research Fellowships were renamed the Dorothy Killam Fellowships, owing to Dorothy Killam’s vision of building Canada’s future through advanced study. 

The newly designed Dorothy Killam Fellowships are valued at $80,000/year for two years to 5-8 scholars per year. Like its predecessor program, the Dorothy Killam 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.
