Faculty of medicine learners are among the twenty-six UBC doctoral candidates who received a Killam Doctoral Scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year.
The Killam Doctoral Scholarships, available to students in all disciplines, are provided each year from the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Fund for Advanced Studies and are awarded to the top doctoral candidates in the annual Tri-Agency/Affiliated Fellowships competition. These scholarships provide up to $30,000 per year plus a $2,000 research travel allowance over a two-year term.
Since 1965, the Killam Trusts have awarded more than 7,500 scholarships and fellowships to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty at Killam institutions across Canada, including more than 2,000 at UBC.
The recipients received their awards at a ceremony held in late October.
