Students do not apply for SOX, rather they are selected for the program based on their educational achievements and involvement in student activities. Each SOX Fellow gets a scholarship and one hour of internship credit.
To be selected for SOX Fellows, students must be nominated by their professors. Ideal candidates must have a solid work ethic; show they are able to completely commit to the project; and must be disciplined, passionate, and a reliable team player.
Nominations occur during sophomore and junior years.
