AIFP Application

Thank you for your interest in the SEO Alternative Investments Fellowship Program (AIFP). Applications for the 2022-2023 Fall AIFP class are now open!

For the first time in its history, the AIFP will have two application cycles for candidates interested in joining—in the Spring and in the Fall. All applicants accepted during either cycle will collectively form the 2022-2023 AIFP class. Applicants who are not accepted in one application cycle are welcome to continue preparing for AIFP and apply again in another cycle.

Program Criteria

  1. First-through third-year United States-based investment banking analysts and management consultants. (Applicants with offers to begin work in Spring or Summer 2022 will be eligible to apply in the Fall cycle after having started full-time work.)
  2. Individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in alternative investments (i.e., people of Black, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American descent, as well as Asian Women).
  3. SEO alumni and non-alumni may apply.
