The Koch Fellow Program 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.

Summer KFP runs for 10 weeks and Spring KFP runs for 12 weeks. Both programs include:

  • In-person seminars at the beginning and end of the program.
  • An internship at a state, federal, or single-issue policy organization located in the Washington, DC, area, or elsewhere across the country. Fellows who are already employed full time may opt to remain in their current role during the program, provided the position and organization are approved by our selection team.
  • Weekly night lectures on popular policy issues on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
  • Professional education and training opportunities on topics such as public speaking.
  • A generous stipend to help offset the costs of participating in the in the amount of $5,000 for Summer KFP (10 weeks) or $6,000 for Spring KFP (12 weeks). Visit our FAQs for more information.
