The Killam Program of the Canada Council for the Arts: Killam Prizes
The Canada Council Killam Prizes were inaugurated in 1981 with a donation by Mrs. Dorothy J. Killam in memory of her husband, Izaak Walton Killam. The Prizes were created to honour eminent Canadian scholars and scientists actively engaged in research, whether in industry, government agencies or universities.
The Canada Council Killam Program is part of a larger set of Killam Trusts, which fund scholarship and research at four Canadian universities, a neurological research and clinical institute and the Canada Council. In total, the Killam Trusts are valued at approximately $425 million, of which the Canada Council portion is $55 million. For more information about the Killam Trusts, please visit www.killamlaureates.ca.
Five prizes of $100,000 are awarded each year in recognition of outstanding career achievements (1 prize in each of the 5 fields).
Nomination deadline for 2022 prizes: June 30, 2022
