The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is now accepting proposals for the 2011 Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program.

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation supports doctoral students through the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program. The Foundation will award up to 15 Dissertation Fellowship grants of $20,000 each to Ph.D., D.B.A. or other doctoral students for the support of dissertations in the area of entrepreneurship. This competitive program is open to students seeking doctoral degrees from accredited U.S. institutions of higher education. This program is intended for students who are in the process of formulating their dissertation proposals as well as doctoral candidates with recently approved dissertation proposals. It is expected that applicants will complete their dissertation during the 2011-2012 academic year. The deadline for this year’s program is 7:00 PM Central Time on Wednesday, September 15, 2010.

This initiative will help launch a cohort of world-class scholars into this 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.
