2018 Wall Scholar Dr. Sara Milstein Awarded Killam Fellowship

March 24, 2021

Congratulations to 2018 Wall Scholar, Dr. Sara Milstein, who was awarded an inaugural Killam Accelerator Research Fellowship (KARF) earlier this month. These awards recognize exceptional early-career researchers at UBC who have demonstrated outstanding research achievement and the potential for significant impact in their fields of scholarship.

Dr. Milstein credited her time at the Institute as crucial to her conception of her KARF research proposal, saying:

“The entire way I conceived of this project was informed by my year at PWIAS. Being at the Institute pushed me to find ways of communicating with people outside of my field and to think about how my research could have an impact beyond my own discipline.”

Congratulations to all six recipients of the inaugural Killam Accelerator Research Fellowships.
