Entrepreneurship Policy Fellowship

APPAM Entrepreneurship/Policy Fellowship for PhD Students

APPAM is offering a new annual fellowship program for five PhD students who are interested in studying entrepreneurship and policy. The voices of entrepreneurs are indispensably important during the policy making process and we want to encourage students who are focusing on this vital sector of society. APPAM, with support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, will offer classes for students to explore the relationship between public policy and the entrepreneurial environment.
