Canada Council for the Arts Killam Prizes

The Killam Program offers two kinds of awards: Killam Prizes and Killam Research Fellowships. Killam Prizes are awarded to active Canadian scholars who have made a substantial and significant contribution to their respective fields in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences or engineering. Normally, one $100,000 CAD prize is awarded each year in each of the five disciplines.

Eligibility: Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Canada Council encourages the participation of women. Killam Prizes are intended for active (not retired) Canadian scholars who have made a substantial and distinguished contribution, over a significant period, to scholarly research. A Killam Prize is not intended as an “end of service” reward, as recognition for one great accomplishment, or in expectation of future distinguished contributions.

Internal process: Institutional Strategic Awards (ISA) coordinates the internal selection of SFU candidates and leads the development of institutional nominations or endorsements for this opportunity. To promote equity, diversity and inclusion, departments and faculties should ensure that all eligible candidates are considered and given the opportunity to self-identify. To recommend a candidate to the President’s Advisory Committee on Awards, Honours and Prizes, please submit a candidate suggestion form by the internal deadline noted below. For more information, please visit the ISA website or contact awards@sfu.ca.
