The Killam Program was established by the Canada Council (now called The Canada Council for the Arts) with money bequeathed by Mrs Dorothy J. Killam. It was set up to support exceptional scholars engaged in research projects ‘of far-reaching significance’.
“My purpose in establishing the Killam trusts is to help in the building of Canada’s future by encouraging advanced studies. Thereby I hope to increase the scientific and scholastic attainments of Canadians to develop and expand the work of Canadian Universities and to promote sympathetic understanding between Canadians and the people of other countries”. Dorothy J. Killam
