The Killam Fellowships Program is administered by the Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and the U.S. It is supported by the American Killam Trusts, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, and the Foundation. The Program provides support for undergraduate students in either country to participate in a binational residential academic exchange program. Scholarship recipients spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in the host country. Selected students receive $5000 (US) for a semester; $10,000 for a full year.
The program is open to all qualified undergraduate students in both countries. Clemson students can apply to the direct exchange program, which is limited to the participating university partners. Clemson has been a university partner since the spring of 2008. Partner institutions are listed below.
