The Rowan University Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (RCIE) solicits proposals for an inaugural cohort of (virtual) Rowan Entrepreneurship Research Fellows (RERFs) for the ‘17-‘18 academic year. The RCIE is especially interested in fellows with interests in entrepreneurial mindset, competencies, cognition, and/or education (ie-scholars Editor’s note: scholars with international entrepreneurship research interests are also encouraged to apply).

About the Fellowship

The program is designed to facilitate new research partnerships between RCIE faculty and a global, interdisciplinary, network of emerging scholars. This is a virtual (not a residential) fellowship meaning it is completed from the fellow’s home or home institution and not on Rowan’s campus – fellows will collaborate with their Rowan faculty partner virtually. Each fellow will receive a $2,500 (USD) honorarium and access to RCIE’s research resources. Each fellowship is unique, so individual outcomes will vary based on the mutually agreed upon project scope. While the goal and outcomes of a RERF may vary, preference will be given to scholars interested in collaboratively pursuing peer reviewed research publications with Rowan’s entrepreneurship faculty.

Ideal RERFs Candidates

Doctoral students, doctoral candidates, or recent PhDs with an interest in working on a collaborative research project with a member of the RCIE faculty. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a core focus of the RCIE so scholars from all fields are encouraged to apply. Masters students who have completed or are near completion of a research-focused thesis and are applying to doctoral programs will also be considered.
