The Koch Fellowship

Don Koch, a Colorado historian and author, established the Donald Warner Koch Colorado History Fund to endow two fellowships for CU Denver graduate students and highly qualified undergraduates enrolled in history. Fellows gain training and experience in archive and collections management, education, historic preservation, librarianship, museum studies, public history and publications. Don Koch died in 2000 but left these fellowships to encourage future Colorado historians.

Koch Fellowships provide two CU Denver History student fellows $5,500 each to spend an average of 8 hours a week for the 2018-2019 academic year at History Colorado under the direction of Emily Dobish, Manager of Volunteers, who supervises CU-Denver Koch Fellows at History Colorado, 1200 Broadway.

Please note, if selected as a semi-finalist, an interview is required
