Charles Koch Institute Fellow and Internship Programs

The Charles Koch Institute is an educational organization focused on the importance of free societies and how they increase well-being for the overwhelming majority of people. Through the Institute’s professional education, research, and training programs, they work to prepare professionals for careers that improve well-being by advancing free societies.  For more than two decades, Charles G. Koch has given professionals and students the opportunity to turn their passion for liberty into careers through professional education programs.  Several programs might be of interest to W&L students.  Programs are offered in the fall, spring, and summer.

The Koch Fellow Program: Communications uniquely combines communications work experience with professional education. Programming is broad-based and avocational. It will include sessions on topics such as op-ed writing, pitching, public speaking, media training, and case studies of successful communications efforts. Through the program, fellows are placed in public relations, media relations, and other communications roles at liberty-advancing non-profit organizations in DC and throughout the states.

The Koch Fellow Program: Development uniquely combines development experience with professional education. Programming is broad-based and avocational. It includes sessions on topics to help you understand the breadth of opportunity available to you in the field of development and professional development to help you be successful in a development shop. Through the program, fellows are placed in fundraising and development roles at liberty-advancing non-profit organizations in the DC metro area and throughout the states.

The Koch Fellow Program: Policy uniquely combines policy work experience with professional education. Through the program, fellows are connected to policy and research roles at more than 80 think tanks and non-profit organizations across the country, as well as directly with professors. Alongside this in-depth work experience on a variety of federal and state issues, fellows undertake a rigorous curriculum of market-based policy analysis, participate in professional education seminars, and engage in theoretical discourse on the ideas of a free society.

The Koch Internship Program is an opportunity not only to work for a think tank or public policy organization in the Washington, DC area or in your state, but also to receive valuable professional education and paid, hands-on experience. Designed for individuals who are passionate about promoting societal well-being through advancing free societies, the program offers a chance to develop your knowledge and skills, all while building a valuable professional network and an understanding of non-profit career paths.
