Dissertation Grants Available for Entrepreneurship Studies

Library books (timetrax23/Flickr)The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Missouri has opened applications for its 2011-2012 Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program. The online request for proposals runs through 14 September 2011.

The Kauffman Foundation plans to award 15 fellowship grants of $20,000 each for Ph.D., D.B.A, and other doctoral students who include studies of entrepreneurship as part of their dissertations. The program is aimed at students who are still formulating their dissertation proposals, as well as doctoral candidates with recently approved dissertation proposals.

Since 2003, the dissertation fellowship initiative has helped 123 scholars with their research. The program is open to doctoral students seeking degrees from accredited U.S. institutions. Applicants are expected to complete their dissertations by the end of the 2012-2013 academic year.

Grant recipients may use the funding to pay for costs associated with their dissertation, including data collection and analysis, databases, specialized hardware or software, and travel.
