Stephen Sweet, Program Coordinator, Marketing & Recruiting at the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, traveled to the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) and to its affiliate the AHI Rochester to inform undergraduates about a wide variety of opportunities for students in advancing liberty with the Charles Koch Institute.

Stephen Sweet speaks about opportunities with Koch to AHI Undergraduate Fellows

At the AHI Clinton, Mr. Sweet made two presentations on October 24.  About thirty Hamilton College students heard Mr. Sweet speak about the importance of economic freedom and the related work of the Koch Internship Program, Koch Associate Program, and LIBERTY@Work.  The Koch Internship Program helps cultivate “the professional skills of students and recent graduates through rigorous professional education and work experience” in Washington, D.C.  The Koch Associate Program offers “careers in advancing economic freedom through professional education and full-time employment” in Washington, D.C.  LIBERTY@WORK opens doors to students for a wide array of opportunities “at liberty-advancing organizations across the country while engaging in online professional education.”

In the evening, the AHI held a special dinner in Mr. Sweet’s honor during which he had a chance to meet a select group of twenty AHI Undergraduate Fellows.  They voiced their concerns about the economic direction of the country and learned in greater detail about “freedom” opportunities with the Koch programs.  AHI Undergraduate Fellows have already made their mark in various Koch programs.  The AHI thanks Mr. Sweet and the Charles Koch Institute for their efforts.

“The Charles Koch Foundation was established in 1980 by Charles G. Koch in order to advance social progress and well-being through the study and advancement of economic freedom. Through the Foundation’s history, it has supported the study of economic freedom through grant giving and support for professional education programs.”
