Killam Prizes

The Killam Program offers two kinds of awards: Killam Prizes and Killam Research Fellowships. 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 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.

Note: Please contact Institutional Strategic Awards at awards@sfu.ca for assistance.
