The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning will hold a competition for Best Paper on Architecture, Planning, & Entrepreneurship. This new competition, offering two $1,500 awards, will be granted to one faculty and one student each year for three years. Award submissions will open February 20.

Both awards are part of a Kauffman Foundation initiative to broaden disciplinary focus on entrepreneurship research.

“We look forward to collaborating with planning students and faculty,” Kauffman Foundation President & CEO Wendy Guillies said. “Our hope is to uncover interesting research happening in disciplines we have not yet explored, and the ACSP membership provides a valuable platform to assist us with this goal.”

Research that has direct practical implications and that addresses pressing economic and/or social problems are especially appropriate for this award. Detailed information on the awards and how to apply will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is a private, nonpartisan foundation that works together with communities in education and entrepreneurship to create uncommon solutions and empower people to shape their futures and be successful. The Kauffman Foundation is based in Kansas City, Missouri, and uses its $2 billion in assets to collaboratively help people be self-sufficient, productive citizens.


The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning promotes education, research, service and outreach in the United States and throughout the world by seeking to:

  • recognize diverse needs and interests in planning;
  • improve and enhance the accreditation process, and;
  • strengthen the role of planning education in colleges and universities through publications, conferences, and community engagement;
  • extend planning beyond the classroom into the world of practice.
