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.
Three keys to “learning by doing”The Koch Internship Program, Koch Associate Program, and Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship receive hundreds of applications each year. And when we ask applicants what is driving their interest in our educational programs, we hear that it is the chance to “learn by doing.” May 19, 2021
