About the Doctoral Student Workshop
The Doctoral Workshop, sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, focuses on technology entrepreneurship with an emphasis on contemporary work in the field. It offers an intellectually stimulating experience, maps the theoretical domain of technology entrepreneurship, and builds community. Workshop participants will have opportunities to present their own research interests, to interact with each other, and to get acquainted with faculty members. This is a great opportunity for doctoral students to learn from leading scholars and contemporary work in the field. Applicants focusing on the nexus of technology, innovation, and etrepreneurship will be given preference.

2015 Schedule (coming soon)

The doctoral student workshop offers two separate tracks. (The two tracks will join together for selected workshop sessions/panels and for all meals.)

Track 1 is designed for doctoral students who have not yet defended a dissertation proposal and who may still be in the process of selecting a dissertation topic. This track will devote attention to the selection of a dissertation topic, research design, and sources of data.

Track 2 is intended for students who have defended dissertation proposals (or who are close to doing so). This track will devote attention to completing the dissertation, publishing the dissertation, and early career considerations.

Meals and Lodging
Each student selected to attend the Doctoral Workshop will be provided with all meals and three nights accomodation (double occupancy).

Travel Stipend
Each student selected to attend the Doctoral Workshop may receive up to $200 in reimbursement for travel expenses.
