Koch Internship Program

About the Program

The Koch Internship Program combines individualized education with hands-on work experience to empower social entrepreneurs to drive their own careers and make a positive contribution right away.

While in the program, interns work at one of our many participating organizations, earning a stipend of $450 a week. The training provided by Charles Koch Institute focuses on three pillars:

  • Learning CKI’s vision for social change and connecting with our network of collaborators
  • Discovering and developing your unique aptitudes and strengths
  • Learning the guiding principles of Market-Based Management™

Each intern is mentored by a seasoned professional and works on a capstone project on what matters most to them.
