Koch Brothers University

This article on the Daily Kos website last year listed the money the Koch brothers have given to universities to influence what they teach, shown in the list below. A Center for Public Integrity chart from this year showed this chart of the largest recipients. Despite denials from university officials that this largesse had any effect on curriculum, the CPC notes:

When, for example, the Charles Koch Foundation in 2011 pledged $1.5 million to Florida State University’s economics department, a contract between the foundation and university stipulated that a Koch-appointed advisory committee select professors and conduct annual evaluations, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

2 Florida State University Tallahassee, Fla. $297,341
3 Troy University Troy, Ala. $274,500
4 University of Arizona Tucson, Ariz. $249,520
5 Utah State University Logan, Utah $170,000
6 Clemson University Clemson, S.C. $165,000
