Dorothy J Killam Memorial Graduate Prizes

The Dorothy J Killam Memorial Graduate Prizes were created in the fall of 2002 to honor the memory of Dorothy J Killam.

Prizes are awarded annually to the most outstanding Killam Memorial Scholarship recipients in the annual scholarship competition.

The recipients are selected based on academic achievement, a research proposal, letters of recommendation, and leadership qualities. Recipients receive a cash prize of $2,500 and a certificate acknowledging their award.

There is no application form; recipients are selected by the Graduate Scholarship Committee during the Killam, Dissertation, and Andrew Stewart Awards Competition final selection meeting.
