Killam Fellowship


Complete intake advising by Dec 1


The Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional undergraduate students from universities in the United States to spend one or two semesters as an exchange student in Canada. This program, administered by Fulbright Canada, is supported by the American Killam Trusts and Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada. It is an integral part of the Foundation's multidimensional strategy to foster mutual understanding between Canada and the United States of America.


Eligibility criteria

To be eligible to apply, students must satisfy the following requirements:

  • US citizenship
  • Be a full-time undergraduate student in good standing
  • Meet ASU eligibility requirements for study abroad
  • Be fluent in English or French, where appropriate
  • Be a first-year, second-year, or third-year student with at least one full year of study remaining

Selection criteria

Killam Fellows are expected to have a "superior" academic record. Strong applications will also make a clear and compelling case for how a semester spent as an exchange student to a Canadian University will support their larger academic and professional goals.

Application process

Students at ASU will apply for the Direct Exchange Program, which means that they must first apply through ONSA for endorsement. Up to six students may be endorsed each year.

Full instructions for the endorsement process are available at
