The Kauffman Foundation established the Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship in Entrepreneurship Research in 2008 to recognize tenured or tenure-track junior faculty members at accredited U.S. universities who are beginning to establish a record of scholarship and exhibit the potential to make significant contributions to the body of research in the field of entrepreneurship.

This initiative will help to launch world-class scholars into a young and exciting field of research, thus laying a foundation for future scientific advancement. 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 policymakers, educators, service providers, and entrepreneurs as well as high-quality academic research.

The Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship in Entrepreneurship Research is one of three academic recognition programs established by the Kauffman Foundation to aid the Foundation in achieving its goal of building a body of respected entrepreneurship research and making entrepreneurship a highly regarded academic field. The other programs are the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Prize Medal for Distinguished Research in Entrepreneurship.
