Connecting users with opportunities.

College Connection

“I was in the process of applying to the Coast Guard Academy when I was messaged by the Webb Institute. They saw I was interested in swimming and robotics, and they focused on boats, so I knew it was right.”

Alex K. from Pennsylvania found his current college — where he’s studying tuition free — on Tallo. The Webb Institute recruited Alex for their class of 2021, and through their interactions on Tallo, Alex knew he found his perfect school. 

Scholarship Connection

“I want to be a lead engineer in the Aerospace Defense industry, and that’s why I use Tallo.”

Through Tallo, Alijah M. from South Carolina was chosen to be a part of a STEM Signing Day, where he connected with Boeing representatives. Because of this connection, he was accepted into the Boeing Scholars program, and received a scholarship to attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. 

STEM Connection

“Thanks to Tallo, I was given the opportunity to attend the Potomac STEM signing day, hear from the future minds of STEM, and network and become aware of countless opportunities. I love how my Tallo profile gives others a holistic view of myself (instead of just scores, stats, etc). I will forever be thankful for the opportunities Tallo has granted me.”

Autumn B. from Washington, DC connected with leaders in the STEM field as an honoree in the first ever Potomac STEM Signing Day, presented by Boeing. Autumn wants to study healthcare and biotechnology, and started a business selling her own natural whipped Shea butter skincare products.

Career Connection

“Before the summer, I was a little more worried because I wasn’t quite sure where I would go. I knew I wanted to go to college and work at a good place and keep my grades up, but now I’m feeling more confident knowing that I’ll excel wherever I’ll go. I know I have the skill and drive to stand out.”

Jocelyn H. from Colorado used Tallo to score her dream internship with Lockheed Martin — two summers in a row! Jocelyn showcased her interest in engineering and excellent communication skills on her Tallo profile, and impressed Lockheed Martin at the 2019 FIRST Championships, where her robotics team competed. 

College Connection

“The University of Minnesota-Rochester will be a really good fit. It’s like a community, kind of like my small town, and it reminds me of home.”

Amber F. from North Dakota learned about her dream college, the University of Minnesota-Rochester, through Tallo. She created her profile just before her junior year of high school, and UMR reached out right away. When she decided to apply, she was accepted with early admission! 

Scholarship Connection

“Tallo has made a huge difference in my life. Through it, I participated in South Carolina’s 2019 STEM Signing Day, received a scholarship from Boeing to attend Embry-Riddle, and am now so proud to say I’m a first-generation college student.” 

Irvin E. from South Carolina is the first in his family to go to college. He’s attending the largest university specializing in aviation and aerospace, and he received a scholarship from Boeing through his Tallo profile. 

Building talent pipelines for companies.

“It’s been incredibly helpful to have a way to directly reach students interested in STEM. Tapping into Tallo’s ever-growing pool of students has allowed us to expand and strengthen our talent pipeline, as well as give us hope for the future.”

Dulcy O’Rourke, Corporate STEM Program Manager at Lockheed Martin

“Tallo is an exceptional tool to help strengthen the pipeline of our future workforce.”

Kelly Halliwell, Global Corporate Citizenship at Boeing 

Bringing opportunities to organizations.

“Our students use Tallo to connect with their futures in a safe, virtual environment. Through our partnership with Tallo, HOSA members receive career and college opportunities that support our values of learning, leadership, service, and innovation.” 

Jim Koeninger, Ph.D., Executive Director of HOSA-Future Health Professionals


“Tallo and FBLA-PBL share a very important mission to provide the next generation of leaders with career preparation and professional experiences. Tallo continues to be a valuable resource for our students, and an important way for us to foster relationships with new and existing members across the country.” 

Alexander T. Graham, President & CEO of FBLA-PBL

“Reaching one million users on the Tallo platform is an important win for our community. We have a responsibility to connect our talented and diverse young people with workforce programs, colleges, and employers, and Tallo is the go to virtual tool for making this happen with a laser focus on equity and empowerment for all.”

Don Baker, President and CEO of FAME, Inc.

“Congratulations, Tallo, on reaching one million users! FIRST is more than robots, and Tallo is a great tool for our students and alumni to showcase — and be recognized for — their many talents.”

Helping colleges recruit future talent.

Erik Johnson, Director of Admissions at Oregon Tech

“We’re looking to make early, meaningful connections with students who may be a good fit for Clemson University. Tallo’s outreach micro-targets those students and drums up interest in our events, academic programs, and student life.”

David Kuskowski Director of Admissions at Clemson University
