Killam Teaching Prize

The Killam Scholarship and Prize Programmes were established in 1965 through the generous benefaction of Izaak Walton Killam and Dorothy J. Killam, with the aim to support advanced education and research at five Canadian universities and the Canada Council for the Arts. As one of the six Killam institutions, UBC offers an annual Killam Teaching Prize to faculty in recognition of excellence in teaching.

Nominees will have already received prior award(s) in recognition of teaching excellence and/or innovation, and must be nominated by their Department Head, or equivalent.

In addition to this recognition, the teaching prize recipient will receive in the fall an invitation to a ceremony and reception with the Killam Trustees, members of the Killam family, and other Killam scholars at UBC.
