The first year of the Roads Scholars program was so successful that Pat the Digital Vagabond decided to roll out year two.

Back when he was in his 20s, Matador member Pat the Digital Vagabond went on his first cross-country road trip of the United States.

It changed his life.

“Roughly twenty years after my first great road trip,” Pat says, “I’m still a devout believer in the religion and magic of vagabonding.”

Pat continues to travel and is committed to making travel possible for other young people, too. That’s why he started the “Roads Scholarship,” a program intended to award a talented traveler/writer/photographer with a summer stipend of $500 USD and a ticket to the Burning Man Festival.

After last year’s successful launch of the scholarship, Pat decided to continue the scholarship in 2010. If you’re interested in applying for the scholarship, please visit Pat’s site, Digital Vagabonding, for more information.
