Killam Fellowship Program

The Killam Fellowship Program allows undergraduate students from Canada and the United States to participate in a program of binational residential exchange.

The Killam Fellowship Program allows undergraduate students from Canada and the United States to participate in a program of binational residential exchange.

The Killam Fellowship Program gives undergraduate students from universities in the United States the opportunity to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in Canada. UW students may participate in the program as a direct exchange student (registering at their home university, paying their home fees, and attending the host university as an exchange visitor). 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 (plus other benefits).

This program, administered by Fulbright Canada, is supported by an endowment from the American Killam Trusts, Global Affairs Canada, and the Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and the United States of America (Fulbright Canada). It is an integral part of the Foundation’s multidimensional strategy to foster mutual understanding between Canada and the United States of America. In 2008 the Canadian Studies Center signed a partnership agreement with the Killam Foundation enabling up to two full academic year fellowships annually for UW students.
