AIFP Application

Thank you for your interest in the SEO Alternative Investments Fellowship Program (AIFP).

The SEO AIFP will have two application cycles for candidates interested in joining in 2023—in the Spring and in the Fall. Applicants who are not accepted in one application cycle are welcome to continue preparing for AIFP and apply again in another cycle. Applications for the Spring cycle are now closed.

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 2023 are eligible to apply!)
  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.
