About the Fellowship

The Travel Noire Fellowship is a unique part-time unpaid program designed for aspiring and seasonal travelers alike.

Fellows get a behind-the-scenes look into a rapidly growing travel brand and one-on-one access to the Travel Noire CEO for personalized travel hacking calls. This fellowship is location independent (you can live anywhere). This fellowship will show you how to build a rapidly growing brand, hack your way around the world and turn your travel dreams into an incredible reality.

A Travel Noire Fellow is a hustler and self-starter with a thirst for creation and a passion for exploration. Fellows are team players who commit 4-6 months & don’t mind getting their hands dirty. The ideal fellow will have excellent communication skills, experience with working with a remote team and a freelance background.


Features

Have dreams of spending the summer in Malta, ziplining through the jungles of Costa Rica or shopping the souks of Marrakech? Each week, you will have a dedicated call with the CEO of Travel Noire to flush out strategies & hone in on tips and tricks designed to have you traveling farther than you’ve ever imagined!

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

  • In just six months, I earned over 120,000 airline miles to use towards my dream trip to Italy! I learned how to snag super cheap flights anywhere in the world, get paid while traveling, maximize my vacation days and holidays and get free hotel stays. This fellowship opened my eyes to a whole new world of unconventional travel that I never knew existed.
  • The hands on approach to communication was great. It really gave the company an amazing personal touch. I enjoyed editing footage of places I've never been and the overall collaborative effort and flexibility with each project was dope.
  • When I first heard about the fellowship, I was worried about the time commitment. But now that I’ve gone through the flexible program, my entire approach to travel is different. I look for deals and ways to accumulate points to maximize saving. I highly recommend this fellowship!
  • Because of this fellowship, I’ve accumulated 130,000 miles in a few short months. I’ve taken extended weekend trips and have three international trips in the works. I loved the weekly travel hacking sessions and would recommend this fellowship to anyone interested in being a part of a large family of unconventional travelers.
  • To be surrounded by people who share the same passions and interests as you is a splendid adventure!
