Making College Worth It Roadtrip

Want to participate in a TV show and receive a stipend to explore your career interest? Join Roadtrip Nation’s television series about how people find their paths in life. Apply by April 14.
6 Apr 2024

We’ll help you explore the many affordable, equitable, and accessible options available to you by connecting you with mentors and leaders in your field of interest. You’ll reimagine whether college is right for you, as well as discover how others have used equitable postsecondary education to enrich their livelihood and make an impact on their community. And you’ll travel the country for free while you do it! 

If you’re asking questions like:

  • How can college set me up for success?
  • What are my options when it comes to higher education?
  • How could my time in college help me change the world for the better?

We want to hear from you!

Fueled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Strada Education Foundation, this is an experience you’ll never forget. So apply here and get ready for the next phase of your future! 

You’ll be applying to be part of Roadtrip Nation’s public television series about how people find their paths in life. And we want to highlight you and share your story too.

You’ll meet subject matter experts and leaders who’ve been right where you are. As you travel the country in our big green RV, you’ll meet people who’ve graduated from HBCUs, HSIs, MSIs, work-based learning programs, private, public, and nonprofit schools, and more. Along the way, you’ll learn how you can find a college that’ll yield you big personal gains—all at an affordable price and in an equitable environment!

Still, this is so much more than a TV show—it’s an opportunity for you to get out there, get exposure to new paths and possibilities, and talk to people whose stories can change your life. 

Additional Information: 

  • We’ll be filming for 3-4 week July/August, and we’ll work with you to schedule around your life commitments during that time.
  • All travel expenses—plus a daily stipend for personal expenses—are paid for by Roadtrip Nation. We’ll work with you to make sure the stipend covers what you need to be able to participate.
  • The experience will be filmed, and you’ll be asked to share your thoughts and feelings on-camera throughout the journey. The resulting documentary may be shown on public television, and/or used in Roadtrip Nation’s educational tools.
  • If selected, you’ll help plan the experience around your interests and career aspirations—so you’ll need to work with Roadtrip Nation to research and book interviews with the career role models you’d like to speak with.
  • After filming is over, we’ll provide you with six months of free personalized career coaching and support from InsideTrack to help you pursue your life, education, and career goals.
