Institutional Investor will be spotlighting Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) as the featured charity at this year’s awards dinners at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in NYC.
SEO was founded in 1963 with a mission to provide talented and motivated young people from underserved and underrepresented communities with access to superior educational and career opportunities. Today, SEO runs three programs: SEO Scholars is an eight-year academic program that gets low-income public high school students to and through college—with a 90% college graduation rate; SEO Career is a summer internship and professional development program targeting talented Black, Hispanic, and Native American undergrads and pre-law school candidates—with 80% of 2015 and 2016 interns receiving full-time employment offers from an SEO partner; SEO Alternative Investments provides education, exposure, training and mentoring opportunities to talented professionals traditionally underrepresented in the alternative investments sector. Nearly 90% of participants in the Alternative Investments Fellowship Program received full-time job offers in the alternative investments sector. For more information, visit www.seo-usa.org.
Congratulations to all of Institutional Investor's Award Winners.
