Typically, the recipient of a Killam Research Fellowship is a full professor at a Canadian university. Fellowships are awarded annually, on a competitive basis, to support scholars doing research in any of the following fields: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, studies linking any of the disciplines within these fields.
