The SEC's mission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. The agency seeks high-caliber professionals who share the same values of integrity, fairness, accountability, resourcefulness, teamwork, and commitment to excellence.

The Summer Honors College Program is an internship program that introduces undergraduate students pursuing degrees in such areas as accounting, economics, finance, human resource management and information technology/information security, among others, to the regulation of the securities markets and the work of the Commission. Students from undergraduate schools across the country work at the Commission's Washington, DC, Headquarters and in a number of our Regional Offices nationwide.

Though these are volunteer positions, they offer students responsibilities and experiences that promote their careers. Over the course of the ten-week program, students work with Commission staff on several projects particular to the specific Division or Office to which they are assigned. Students participate in seminars/workshops on various aspects of the federal securities laws. We ask that our interns commit 40-hours per week for 10 weeks.
