The FED's grant program supports tax exempt organizations that are engaged in critical inter-disciplinary research, education, knowledge sharing, and/or policy development with the widest effect on advancing the concepts of broad-based ownership and entrepreneurship. In the past five years, the Foundation has focused on opportunities for improved research and educational materials on shared capitalism and ownership models, especially in science- and technology-based industries. We are excited to see young and senior scholars engaged in growing a body of important research, teaching materials, and new means for broadly disseminating materials to business educators.
Applicants for Beyster Fellowships may submit an application to Rutgers University by January 31 for fellowships beginning the following July 1.
