KDFP Request for Proposals - 2015

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is pleased to announce the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program, an initiative of great significance to the faculty and students of your institution. During the 2014-2015 academic year, the Kauffman Foundation will award up to 15 Dissertation Fellowship grants of $15,000 each to Ph.D., D.B.A. or other doctoral students for the support of dissertations in the area of entrepreneurship.

This initiative will help launch a cohort of world-class scholars into this young and exciting field, thus laying a foundation for future scientific advancement. We hope that the findings generated by this effort will be translated into knowledge with immediate application for policy makers, educators, service providers and entrepreneurs.
