Kauffman Fellows is committed to diversity.

We believe that deeper and broader learning is possible among heterogeneous groups with respect to geographic location, gender, age, culture, ethnicity, personal experiences, and cognitive approach, to name just a few of the many markers of diversity. Diverse Fellows have the opportunity to interact effectively and create innovative ideas, which better prepares them to foster the talents of diverse entrepreneurs.

Consideration may be given to life experiences that contribute significantly to an educationally beneficial mix of Fellows, particularly candidates whose experiences allow them to bring a unique perspective to Kauffman Fellows.

We encourage our Nominators to actively identify and reach out to talented, qualified applicants from historically excluded populations who are currently underrepresented in the investing industry.

Kauffman Fellows does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender, gender expression, age, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, genetic information, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in their administration of educational policies, admissions policies, employment policies, scholarship programs, or provision of services, programs, and activities.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment and aspire to leverage the remarkable diversity of all of our Fellows, staff, and subcontractors.
