STUDYING IN CANADA
one or two semesters
The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional 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.
Students may participate in the program either as a direct exchange student (registering at their home university, paying their home fees, and attend the host university as an exchange visitor) or 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 $10,000 US ($5,000 US per semester). Further, the Foundation provides all Killam Fellows with an allowance of $500 US to offset health insurance costs. In addition, all Fellows are eligible to apply for a mobility grant in an amount not to exceed $800. 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 of the host country. Approximately forty applicants will be awarded scholarships each year.
