Killam Undergraduate Fellowship for Americans
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 a self-placed visiting student (registering at the host university and paying host tuition fees).
The Killam Fellowships Program provides a cash award of $5,000 US per semester ($10,000 for a full academic year), and includes a three day orientation in Ottawa, and a three day spring seminar in Washington. In addition, the Foundation provides all American Killam Fellows with an allowance of $250 CA to offset the cost of health insurance. 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
