Doctoral Consortia Share: Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related Entrepreneurship Research >Kauffman Knowledge Challenge >Kauffman Dissertation Fellows >Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellows >Kauffman Prize Medal for Distinguished Research in Entrepreneurship > As a part of the Kauffman Foundation’s work to improve the quality of research on entrepreneurship, we supported a variety of scholarly training and development activities across the United States. Typically these training opportunities happened as a part of academic annual meetings or at smaller, regional meetings with a heavy focus on doctoral scholars. The list below consists of all entrepreneurship doctoral and early career training programs of which we are aware, both sponsored and non-sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation. The Doctoral Consortia was part of a group of academic recognition programs established by the Kauffman Foundation that were consolidated into the Kauffman Knowledge Challenge starting in 2018. *
