Killam Fellowship Webinar Slated Nov. 21

The University of Maine’s Canadian-American Center and the Office of International Programs are co-hosting a Fulbright Canada webinar to provide UMaine faculty, undergraduate academic advisers and undergraduate students with information about the Killam Fellowships Program.

The webinar will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 in the Bumps Room of the Memorial Union. Registration is not required.

The Killam Fellowship Program offers $5,000 for students to study abroad at any Canadian university for a semester. The scholarships are open to undergraduate students in any major. Students can study in English at one of the many Canadian universities or at a French-speaking university in Quebec for a language-immersion program.

The webinar will be co-hosted by Betsy Arntzen, education outreach coordinator in the Canadian-American Center, and Orlina Boteva, assistant director of Study Abroad in the Office of International Programs.

For more information and to request disability accommodations, contact Boteva at 207.581.1509 or orlina.boteva@umit.maine.edu.

UMaine has worked with the Killam Fellowship since 2009 and is one of 13 university partners in the United States. A full list of university partners in Canada and the U.S. is available online.

Competition for the 2014–15 academic year is open, and applications must be submitted by Jan. 17, 2014. Contact Arntzen at 207.581.4225 or barntzen@umit.maine.edu to apply. More information about the Killam Fellowships is available online.
