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 ten-week program, interns benefit from a hybrid education/work experience: they engage in Stand Together Fellowships professional development programming virtually each Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET with their peers and spend the rest of the week gaining valuable professional experience at one of our many partner organizations. Full-time participants receive a $5,500 stipend while part-time participants receive a $3,300 stipend (attending Thursday programming is required for both part-time and full-time participants). The training provided by Stand Together Fellowships focuses on three pillars:

  • Learning ST Fellowships’ vision for social change and connecting with our network of collaborators
  • Discovering and developing your unique aptitudes and strengths
  • Learning the guiding principles of Principle-Based Management™

Each intern is mentored by a seasoned professional and works on a capstone project on what matters most to them.
