Kansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation announced today that the 2014-2015 Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Programs Request for Proposals is available online, and proposals are being accepted now through Sept. 10, 2014. The Kauffman Foundation will award up to 15 Dissertation Fellowship grants of $15,000 each to Ph.D., D.B.A. or other doctoral students for the support of dissertations in the area of entrepreneurship.

While dissertations can be written on any topic pertaining to entrepreneurship, this year we are particularly interested in research on regional dynamics, human capital dimensions of entrepreneurship, economic growth, entrepreneurship policy and programmatic research, said Robert J. Strom, Ph.D., director of Research and Policy at the Foundation. We are eager to see the contributions that this new group of Fellows will make to the important field of entrepreneurship.

This competitive program is open to students seeking doctoral degrees from accredited U.S. institutions of higher education. The program 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 2015-2016 academic year.

Graduate students interested in applying for the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship Program can find the Request for Proposals online at http://www.kauffman.org/kdfp/. All proposals must be submitted via the online application by 5:00 p.m. Central on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014. Please direct all questions to kdfp(at)kauffman(dot)org.

Recipients may use the grant to pay for costs associated with their dissertation, including data collection and analysis, databases, specialized hardware/software, course buyouts and travel.
