Canada Council for the Arts – Killam Research Fellowships – 2017

Killam Research Fellowships are intended for established scholars who have demonstrated outstanding research ability and who have published the results of their research in substantial publications in their field. Typically, the recipient of a Killam Research Fellowship is a full professor in 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.

You must present a coherent project with a clearly stated objective and well defined plan for reaching that objective. The award is not intended as a subsidy for the overall research.
