Postdoctoral Funding

Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Research Fellowships

The Killam Scholarship and Prize Programmes were established in memory of Izaak Walton Killam through the Will of his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, and through gifts made during her lifetime. Their primary purpose is to support advanced education and research at five Canadian universities and the Canada Council for the Arts.

The UBC Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are provided annually from the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Fund for Advanced Studies and are available for most fields of research. It was Mrs. Killam’s desire that those selected to receive fellowships: “be likely to contribute to the advancement of learning or to win distinction in a profession. A Killam scholar should not be a one-sided person. Special distinction of intellect should be founded upon sound character.”

The number of new awards offered each year presently varies between three and five.

Annual Value: $50,000 annual stipend for a maximum of two years, plus a travel research allowance of $4,000 over two years.
