Undergraduate Students: Killam Fellowships Program

Fulbright Canada offers awards to undergraduate students under the auspices of the Killam Fellowships Program. This award is structurally similar to the Fulbright program as it allows American undergraduate students to spend one semester in Canada. The award is valued at $5,000, includes a Fall Orientation in Ottawa and Spring Seminar in Washington, D.C., and the opportunity to compete for an in-country mobility grant of up to $800.
