Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation - Call for Applications

February 11, 2019

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation will host a bootcamp for entrepreneurship research on May 19 - 23, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Application deadline: Feb. 25, 2019

The program is designed to encourage and connect research with practical problems related to entrepreneurship. Ph.D students and untenured researchers (e.g. pre-tenure, postdocs, and non-university researchers) based at U.S. institutions are eligible to apply.

It is particularly well-suited for early stage Ph.D students who have not yet finalized a dissertation proposal. It is also an exciting opportunity for researchers within five years of their Ph.D who are interested in, but have not previously studied, entrepreneurship. For example, researchers with training in psychology, informatics, or city planning may be interested in extending their established expertise to the study of entrepreneurship.

  • Selected participants will receive a $3,000 stipend to travel to Kansas City and must be present for the entire program from the afternoon of May 19 to the evening of May 23.
  • Participants will be expected to attend dinner on the evening of May 19 and will be expected to arrange their own travel including flights, hotel and ground transportation in Kansas City.
  • Participants will be expected to attend and prepare a summary report about the Foundation's convening during the practical immersion.
  • Eligibility

Applicants must be based (current enrollment or current employment) at a U.S. institution. Applicants must have no existing financial relationships with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Application Process and Deadlines

The application requirements include a brief statement of interest (early stage Ph.D students) or a summary of established research and potential links to entrepreneurship (established researchers), and CV.  Please upload through this link https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4589364/2019-Research-Bootcamp

The Foundation will notify applicants of selection decisions by March 18, 2019. Participants are expected to confirm their attendance by April 5, 2019.
