Partner Organizations

For the Koch Internship Program, the Charles Koch Institute partners with 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations committed to improving well-being by advancing free societies. Partner organizations work on a variety of different issues, including economic freedom, government transparency, constitutional interpretation, and individual liberties. Work opportunities are numerous and vary according to partner organizations’ needs as well as interns’ individual talents. Past interns have worked in fields including public policy research, development, journalism, economics, external relations, and communications.
