The Killam Accelerator Research Fellowship program is established through a bequest from the late Dorothy J. Killam, and strengthens UBC’s support for early-career researchers who are ready to launch the next stage of their careers. Offered on a competitive basis, up to six awards will be made annually through the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Fund.

Recipients will be recognized at an annual event in May and will deliver a public lecture within the two-year term of the fellowship.
