National Research Council
The Dorothy Killam Fellowships support scholars who:
- demonstrate commitment to building Canada’s future and alignment with Killam attributes (inclusive collaborator, barrier breaker, researcher leader)
- are early- to mid-career researchers (typically have completed their PhD no more than 15 years prior)
- are employed at a Canadian research institution
The Dorothy Killam Fellowships are valued at $80,000 CAD per year for a total of up to $160,000 for 2 years.
A Dorothy Killam Fellow is relieved of teaching and some administrative duties for the period of the fellowship. The funds are intended to assist the institution to cover the costs of replacement of the applicant while still paying regular salary and benefits during the 2-year fellowship period. Recipients must obtain support for research and laboratory costs from other sources. All fellowship dispersals are administered to the existing research institution of the applicant.
