The 2017 Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship (KDF) Request for Proposals is available online, and proposals are being accepted by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation through August 17, 2016. The Kauffman Foundation will award up to 20 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.

QUALIFICATIONS: This competitive fellowship is open to students seeking doctoral degrees from accredited U.S. institutions of higher education, and 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 dissertations by the conclusion of the 2017-2018 academic year.

TOPICS: While dissertations can be written on any topic of importance to entrepreneurship, the Kauffman Foundation is particularly interested in regional dynamics and local ecosystems, demographic dimensions of entrepreneurship, economic growth, entrepreneurship policy, declining business dynamism, future of work, economic inequality and mobility, and programmatic research.
