Travel grants are provided to meet the cost of transportation, by the most direct route, from the place of residence at the time of being offered the award, to Halifax. Grants will not exceed the cost of economy airfare for the Fellow and spouse. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide an allowance for the transportation of children or personal effects.
Number of Scholarships: Approximately 5 new fellowships are awarded annually.
Eligibility: Since these Fellowships are intended to attract new scholars to Dalhousie, those scholars already at Dalhousie are not eligible to apply. You are not eligible to apply if you:
a) Hold a PhD or JSD degree from Dalhousie or are currently completing a PhD or JSD degree at Dalhousie.
b) Have held previously, or hold as of the application deadline (December 15), an academic or research appointment of any kind at Dalhousie or King’s College.
c) Received your doctoral degree prior to January 2016.
Questions of eligibility for these Fellowships are decided by the Associate Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies, to whom any inquiries may be directed.
If a Fellow holds another award valued at less than the Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship, the external award will be supplemented to the full Killam value as a “Honourary Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship”.
Eligible Nationalities: There are no restrictions regarding the nationality of applicants, but successful candidates must meet all Canadian Immigration requirements.
Application Procedure: Applicants should forward the complete application and support documents by post.
