Student Funding

Killam Fellowship Program

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. 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).

The Center is dedicated to supporting UW student study-in-Canada experiences. There is no better way for American students to experience, first hand, the subtle differences between our two nations and to have a safe and affordable international experience.

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.
