The Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University offers scholarships and career training to libertarian students. Charles Koch is the Chairman of the IHS board of directors.

IHS is a member of the State Policy Network.

In a recent article, Mother Jones called the Institute for Human Studies a "haven for climate change deniers." Several climate deniers have prominent positions at IHS, including:  Robert Bradley, member of the Academic Review Committee and author of Climate Alarmism Reconsidered (2003); and Fred Singer,  Research Professor at IHS. 

A number of climate deniers are guest lecturers for IHS, such as Bruce Yandle, Senior Associate with Political Economy Research Center; and Kenneth Green, Resident Scholar with American Enterprise Institute.
