The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is seeking nominations for its Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship in Entrepreneurship Research, which was established in 2008 to recognize tenured or tenure-track junior faculty members who are beginning to establish a record of scholarship and who exhibit the potential to make significant contributions to the body of research in the field of entrepreneurship.
To date, the body of work produced by these fellows has helped establish entrepreneurship as a legitimate field of academic study. The continued effort of this initiative will be translated into knowledge with significant applications for policy makers, educators, service providers, and entrepreneurs as well as high-quality academic research.
Through the program, the foundation will award up to seven Junior Faculty Fellowship grants to junior faculty members in the United States whose research has the potential to make significant contributions to the body of literature in entrepreneurship. Each fellow's university will receive a grant of $35,000 over two to three years to support the research activities of the fellow.
Nominees must be tenured or tenure-track junior faculty members at an accredited U.S. institution of higher education who received a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2016. Nominees will have until March 12, 2018, to complete their online applicationp.
