The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students from universities in Canada and the United States to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in the other country. The Killam Fellowships Program offers a cash award of $10,000 US ($5,000 US per semester). The Foundation hosts all new Killam Fellows at an Orientation program in Ottawa each fall and again at a seminar in Washington D.C. each spring. In addition, all Fellows are eligible to apply for a mobility grant up to $800. The application must be submitted according to the internal deadline of your institution (in the case of the direct exchange), or by January 31 (in the case of the open competition).
