The Killam Programs support advanced education and research at the University of Calgary, four other Canadian Universities as well as at the Canada Council for the Arts. The awards, established in 1965 in memory of Izaak Walton Killam, were created by his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam through the combination of a bequest in her will and donations made throughout her life.
