Via a partnership collaboration with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is pleased to announce two new annual awards for promising research by emerging scholars studying planning and entrepreneurship. The purpose of this award program is to identify innovative research in city, community, urban or regional planning that is relevant to questions related to entrepreneurs and their firms as well as to relevant practitioners and policymakers. Research that has direct practical implications and that addresses pressing economic and/or social problems are especially appropriate for these awards.
