Frequently asked questions.

  • What’s the selection process?

    Applications will be reviewed based on academic achievements, university organizations and activities, relevant work experience, and honors and awards. Selected applicants will be invited to a virtual interview session with the Koch Early Career team prior to final scholarship selections.

  • If I apply for a scholarship, do I also have to apply for internships?

    We hope that you’ll want to explore internship, co-op and full-time career opportunities with Koch companies. However, a commitment to an employment offer is not required to participate in the Koch Scholars Program.

  • What opportunities does Koch offer?

    As one of the largest private companies in America, we offer countless ways for you to get involved, gain firsthand experience and make an immediate difference. Explore our many career opportunities.

  • Can I participate in the Koch Scholars Program more than once?

    The Koch Scholars Program provides one-time financial assistance and is non-renewable. Past recipients of scholarships from Koch companies and/or affiliates are not eligible to reapply each year. However, those not selected as recipients are welcome to reapply.
