The Killam Undergraduate Fellowships for Americans

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional undergraduate students from universities in the United States to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in Canada. Students may participate in the program either as a direct exchange student (registering at their home university, paying their home fees, and attending the host university as an exchange visitor) or as a self-placed visiting student (registering at the host university and paying host tuition fees). Applicants interested in the direct exchange program must be registered at one of the participating  American universities and be planning to visit one of the participating  Canadian universities .

The Killam Fellowships Program provides a cash award of $5,000 US per semester ($10,000 for a full academic year), an all expense paid three day orientation in Ottawa, and a three day all expense paid seminar in Washington. In addition, the Foundation provides all American Killam Fellows with a health insurance allowance of $500 Cdn. All Killam Fellows are also eligible to apply for a mobility (in-country travel) grant in an amount not to exceed $800 Cdn. The idea of the mobility initiative is to allow students to undertake an educational field trip, providing the Fellows with the opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of the culture in Canada.

The 2013-2014 competition is now open!

The deadline for the  open competition for the 2013-14 Killam Fellowships competition will be January 31, 2013!  If you are a student at one of our  partner institutions and you are planning to apply to the  direct exchange program , contact a study abroad advisor at your institution to identify the date in which your institution's internal competition ends.
