The deadline to submit nominations for the 2023 Social Entrepreneurship Paper Awards is April 30, 2023. 

The Kauffman Awards in Social Entrepreneurship recognize scholarship that explores how individuals and organizations innovate and fund solutions to address social problems. Social entrepreneurship leaves positive impacts on communities and often includes applied approaches such as policymaking and community organizing. Research that has direct implications for pressing social problems is especially appropriate for these awards. Papers using a broad range of approaches will be considered. Two papers are awarded annually by the SSSP Kauffman Paper Awards Committee. This award is sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Past winners of this award can be found here.
