The Center for Research in Astrophysics of Quebec (CRAQ) congratulates René Doyon of the Université de Montréal, member of the CRAQ and director of the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic (OMM) and the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx), who received a Killam Fellowship from the Canada Council for the Arts.
About the Killam Research Fellowships
The Killam Research Fellowships are release time awards that provide support to scholars of exceptional ability who are engaged in research projects of broad significance and widespread interest within the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, or studies linking any of these disciplines. The fellowships are valued at $70,000 per year and are awarded for a period of two years.
These prizes, which are among the most distinguished research awards in Canada, were established by the Killam Trusts by means of a bequest and gift of Mrs. Dorothy J. Killam in memory of her husband, Izaak Walton Killam, and his outstanding achievements.
