Since 2003, the Emerging Scholars program has supported entrepreneurship scholars early in their careers. The program has funded more than 200 scholars and produced a large, high-quality body of entrepreneurship research (as highlighted in the Foundation’s State of the Field resource).
To celebrate the success and maturity of this program and acknowledge that many of our initial early-stage scholars are increasingly becoming senior scholars, the Kauffman Emerging Scholars will now be called the Kauffman Entrepreneurship Scholars. Everything else will remain the same.
The Entrepreneurship Scholars program focuses on four key milestones in a scholar’s career through four different grant programs:
Through this program, the Kauffman Foundation encourages the best and brightest to focus their academic careers on entrepreneurship. These scholars go on to teach and research entrepreneurship throughout their careers.
Check out this video featuring our most recent Kauffman Prize Medal recipient, Yael Hochberg, on the impact this program is having on the field of entrepreneurship research.
Finally, we are currently accepting applications for our next round of Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship grants. If you, or someone you know, is interested in applying, please click here to find out more. The deadline to apply is August 17, 2016.
