Stand Together Fellowships, (STF) formerly the Charles Koch Institute (CKI), was formed to influence "a new generation of leaders through our educational programs to accelerate their careers and develop new and better ways to tackle the root causes of our country’s biggest problems," according to its website.[1] STF is a rebranding of the Charles Koch Institute, which was created from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation in September 2011 as 501(c)(3) educational organization. In the past, STF sponsored the Koch Associate Program, Koch Internship Program, Koch Summer Fellow Program, and Liberty@Work. As of November 2022, the Charles Koch Institute is still listed an "associate" member of the State Policy Network.[2]
