The University of British Columbia in Canada invites Canadian and international students to apply for the Killam Doctoral Scholarships for 2020, which are a part of the Affiliated Fellowship program. The primary purpose is to support advanced education and research at five Canadian universities and the Canada Council for the Arts. The UBC Killam Doctoral Scholarships are provided annually from the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Fund for Advanced Studies. Killam Doctoral Scholarships are the most prestigious awards available to graduate students at UBC. Approximately 15-20 awards are made each year to the top doctoral candidates in the Affiliated Fellowships competition.

Areas of Study:

  1. Health Sciences
  2. Natural Sciences and Engineering
  3. Social Sciences and Humanities

Eligibility Criteria:

Therefore, applicants to the 2020-2021 competition must have completed no more than 24 months of doctoral study as of 1 September 2020.
  2. Killam Doctoral Scholarships awardees on the UBC-Vancouver campus also become 4-year fellowship holders and receive additional tuition funding from the 4YF program if they are eligible.
