SEC Scholars Program Opens Applications for Fall 2023 Internships


The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is now accepting applications for its Fall 2023 Scholars Program. The program offers internships for undergraduate and graduate students interested in legal and business programs. Internships are paid and range from $15.09 to $35.27 per hour. The SEC encourages students interested in blockchain, distributed ledger technology, computer science, and cyber security to apply.

The SEC Intern Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in the securities industry while working alongside SEC staff. Internships last 10 weeks and start on August 28 and end on November 3. The program is open to students from all over the United States, including SEC regional offices in states such as California, Colorado, Florida, and Georgia.

The business program pays trainees between $15.09 and $28.83 per hour at the SEC’s headquarters in Washington DC, with the lowest pay range being less than the current minimum wage of $16.10. The legal program pays more handsomely, with trainees in the Washington DC and regional offices earning between $23.47 and $35.27 per hour.

Interested applicants must select the lowest pay grade they are willing to accept for the position as part of the application process. The SEC is looking for students who are studying a variety of fields, including blockchain, computer science, cybersecurity, and more.

In May 2022, the SEC expanded its cyber unit, which includes “crypto assets” and “cyber” subdivisions. The unit oversees these sectors and helps determine where to take enforcement actions. The SEC encourages students interested in these fields to apply for the internship.

Those interested in the internship have until April 3 to apply. This opportunity provides students with a valuable learning experience while also giving them the opportunity to contribute to the SEC’s mission of protecting investors and maintaining fair and efficient markets.
