Through research, education, and discussion, the Charles Koch Institute aims to advance an understanding of how to help people improve their lives. We offer educational programs to students and professionals, including full-time and internship opportunities. During 2015, more than 400 people completed one of the programs, and we currently have over 3,000 alumni. The Charles Koch Institute also works to foster a national conversation on critical issues that have a strong impact on the advancement of societal well-being.
History of the Institute
For more than 50 years, Charles G. Koch has supported students and scholars who are focused on improving people’s lives. The Charles Koch Foundation was created to continue this support through academic grants and educational initiatives. Later, the Charles Koch Institute formed as a separate organization specifically dedicated to educating the next generation of professional leaders.
