Careers at Sponsors for Educational Opportunity

Founded in 1963, for over 50 years SEO has been an innovator in education, mentorship, positive peer pressure, high standards, and networks to turn untapped potential into newfound greatness. Every SEO participant is not on the same journey, but all are hungry for opportunity.

We propel human potential. SEO creates an ecosystem of excellence: empowering individuals to move from high school through college, from underserved communities to middle class (SEO Scholars), from underrepresented interns to prestigious careers (SEO Career and SEO Law), from successful professionals to positions of economic influence (SEO Alternative Investments).
