Nomination Deadline: January 19, 2016

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowships. Nominations are due by January 19, 2016, then nominees have until March 14, 2016 to complete their applications.

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.


Eligible candidates must meet the following criteria:

1. Tenured or tenure-track junior faculty members at accredited U.S. institutions of higher education.

2. Received a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2014.

3. Currently researching issues of theoretical and practical importance to the domain of entrepreneurship. Note: Kauffman Foundation associates and family members of Kauffman Foundation associates are not eligible for this program.


Grant awards will be made to the recipient’s institution.

Grant awards may be used to pay for costs associated with the Fellow’s research, but may not include salary supplements, or summer salaries.

Kauffman policy does not allow for overhead or indirect costs to be paid as a part of the grant.


Faculty Fellows will submit a final written report with an explanation of research conducted (both in progress and completed) under the Fellowship, as well as a financial report of monies spent.
