The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Student Programs offer an opportunity for students to become acquainted with the regulation of the securities market and the activities of the Commission. The SEC offers paid positions through the Pathways Intern Program and unpaid positions through the Student Honors Program.

The SEC’s Student Programs offers positions in Washington, D.C. and 11 other cities including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Atlanta.  Students in the SEC’s Student Programs are given responsibilities and practical experiences that not only complement their classroom work, but also promote their careers.
