The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional undergraduate students from universities in the United States to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in Canada. Students may participate in the program either as a direct exchange student (registering at their home university, paying their home fees, and attending 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 $5,000 US per semester ($10,000 for a full academic year), an all expense paid three day orientation in Ottawa, and a three day all expense paid seminar in Washington. In addition, the Foundation provides all American Killam Fellows with a health insurance allowance of $500 Cdn. All Killam Fellows are also eligible to apply for a mobility (in-country travel) grant in an amount not to exceed $800 Cdn.
Eligibility: Applicants must be a citizen of the United States; full-time undergraduate student in good standing at a degree granting institution in the United States; meet the eligibility requirements of their home university (as they relate to participation in international exchange programs); be fluent in English (and/or French, where appropriate); have a superior academic record; complete all the steps of the application process prior to the published deadlines and; be nominated by his/her university to receive a Killam Fellowship.
Deadline: January 31, 2013
