Dorothy Killam Fellowship

How to Apply: 

Dorothy Killam had a vision of building Canada’s future through advanced study. Through her will, she established a perpetual trust to realize her vision and fund generations of scholars in Canada.

A Dorothy Killam Fellow is a leading researcher whose superior, ground-breaking, best-in-class research stands to have significant impact on a national or global scale. A Fellow is someone who also reflects some of the Killam attributes:

  • Inclusive collaborator
  • Barrier breaker
  • Research leader

The Dorothy Killam Fellowships support scholars who:

  • demonstrate commitment to building Canada’s future and alignment with Killam attributes
  • are early- to mid-career researchers (typically have completed their PhD no more than 15 years prior)
  • are employed at a Canadian research institution
