Call for Nominations – Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship – Deadline: January 16, 2018

The 2018 Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship (KJFF) Request for Proposals is available online, and nominations are being accepted by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation through January 16, 2018. This program recognizes junior faculty 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. The Kauffman Foundation will award up to seven fellowships to junior faculty members from universities across the United States. Each Fellow’s university will receive a grant of $35,000 over three years to support the research activities of the Fellow.

The Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship in Entrepreneurship Research is intended to support the research activities of eligible junior faculty members who are actively pursuing research in the field of entrepreneurship. Research can be conducted on any topic of importance to entrepreneurship. The Kauffman Foundation is particularly interested in questions related to regional dynamics, local ecosystems, demographic dimensions of entrepreneurship, market gaps, economic growth, entrepreneurship policy, declining business dynamism, networks, design of policy interventions and programmatic research (research that investigates entrepreneurship programs such as accelerators, training programs, etc). The Kauffman Foundation encourages insights across disciplines and fields, including but not limited to anthropology, biology, computer science, finance, geography, economics, law, management, mathematics, psychology, public administration and policy, and sociology.

Details of the Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship can find the 2018 Call for Nominations online at kjff.

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 the field of entrepreneurship research.
