Want to build your résumé while advancing free societies and promoting well-being? The Koch Internship Program is an opportunity not only to work for a think tank or public policy organization in the Washington, DC area, 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.

This educational program offers the opportunity for one of the highest paid internships among similar liberty-advancing non-profit organizations. Interns receive a stipend of up to $4,500 (10 week summer program), or $6,300 (14 week spring program) for full-time work.

As an intern in DC, you’ll work at a non-profit partner organization and spend one day a week with the Charles Koch Institute engaging in reading discussions, group projects, lectures, and Market-Based Management® workshops. As an intern at a state-based organization, you will further develop your skills and expand your network while connecting with the Charles Koch Institute every Thursday for web-based lectures, reading discussions, and programming. Internship roles vary, and include policy research, communications, operations, donor relations, and more.
