Your life’s passion is rooted in empowering students to realize their full potential and you believe that there is no one set path for success, but rather multiple post-secondary education pathways for students. You connect in a deeply meaningful way to how education that guides students to identify their strengths and think critically about the world can position them to uplift themselves and their communities.
The Charles Koch Foundation’s educational partnerships team is looking for someone like you to help drive the Foundation’s efforts to ignite an environment that empowers students to identify and develop their unique strengths, build their knowledge and skills, and apply what they’ve learned to prepare for a meaningful career in society. As a program officer, you will play a primary role in managing important partnerships with unique organizations like Openstax, the United Negro College Fund and Thurgood Marshall College Fund, trusted partners who not only play a critical role in helping students identify and develop their strengths, but remove barriers to educational opportunity and ensure more students have access to a quality education. In this program officer job you will further the growth of an exceptional and meaningful grants portfolio through engagement and evaluation of potential opportunities.
This opportunity will position you to drive meaningful philanthropic impact and apply your experience to what you are most passionate about.
