Killam Faculty Research Fellowships (UBC)

Assisting promising faculty members who wish to devote full time to research and study in their field during a recognized study leave. Based on special distinction of intellect with due regard for sound character and personal qualities.

Maximum award is $15,000 for a twelve-month period

Package requirements:

  • Application form (online)
  • 50 word citation
  • Two (2) page research plan
  • Official UBC CV
  • Host institution letter (if applicable to this application)
  • Three (3) signed letters of support
    • The letters of support are critical to the selection process and should focus on the applicant’s research. They must be from individuals who are objectively able to assess the work to be carried out. Given that applicants represent varied disciplines each of which may have different expectations about kinds and quantities of scholarly output, it would aid the selection process should the letters of support place the applicant’s record in the context of their field.
    • At least two of the letters must be from individuals from outside UBC and the referees should all be at arm’s length — this may not include your thesis or dissertation supervisor(s), anyone you have supervised, or anyone with whom you have collaborated (as coauthor or co-investigator) within the past 24 months.
    • Letters in excess of three will not be considered.

Deadline: September 15, 2019
