The Killam Prizes (distinct from the Killam Fellowships) are among Canada’s most prestigious and distinguished research awards. Five unrestricted, non-taxable prizes of $100,000 are awarded annually to provide support to Canadian scholars of exceptional ability who are actively engaged in research of broad significance and widespread interest. One prize is awarded in each of the following fields: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, and engineering. Nominations must be made by an expert in the nominee’s field. The deadline for nomination submission is Monday, June 16, 2014. For more information, see the attached documents, or visit killamprogram.canadacouncil.ca.
