Killam Fellowships Program

The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional undergraduate students to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in the United States, at a participating institution. Students have participated in this program to universities such as the University of Michigan and Vanderbuilt University, studying in areas such as Statistics and Art History. Credit load and housing information varies by institution.
