The SEO Career Program recruits and trains outstanding underrepresented college students of color for summer internships that lead to full-time jobs with investment banks, corporate law firms and other leading global companies. Over the past two years, SEO has provided more than 700 internships with more than 50 corporate and philanthropic partners.  What begins as a 10-week summer internship turns into a lifelong professional network and a resource base for SEO alumni through every step of their development.

The SEO Scholars Program prepares motivated New York City public high school students to gain admission and succeed at competitive colleges and universities throughout the country.  The program assists more than 400 high school and college students of color each year, offering a comprehensive roadmap to competitive college admissions and career success. We provide academic preparation, guidance, mentoring, and enriching life experiences that prepare students to take leadership roles in all areas of their lives.

The Alumni and Philanthropy Program drives SEO as an organization. Once a student is accepted into SEO, s/he becomes a member of a global network of more than 6,000 alumni representing 47 U.S. states and 43 countries, supporting each other professionally.  SEO Alumni are at the core of a new generation of highly successful people of color. Programming for this unique group focuses on bringing professional development events to our alumni and other young professionals who are in various stages of their careers, while helping them build capacity for, and commitment to, strategic philanthropy.

The Alternative Investment Fellowship Program is an educational program for recent graduates from groups underrepresented in financial services.  The program is open to SEO alumni and non-alumni.  The aim of the fellowship is to educate these young professionals on various aspects of the alternative investment industry and to strengthen fellows as candidates for positions in the alternative investment sector at the conclusion of their two-year investment banking analyst programs.
