The Dorothy Killam Fellowships support scholars who:
  • demonstrate commitment to building Canada’s future and alignment with Killam attributes
  • are mid-career researchers who usually completed their PhD no more than 15 years prior, though special circumstances may result in applicants being more or less than 15 years post-PhD.
