National College & Career
Pathways Survey

How can you plan for your future when no one knows what tomorrow will bring? Maybe we can help.

We’re the Student Research Foundation, and every year, we do this Career Pathways Survey. The results help career planners, colleges, and universities understand the higher education and career goals of students. And if you help us, we can help you.

What’s In It For You?

If you take our survey, we’ll use your responses for our research. In return, you’ll receive valuable information from colleges, universities, career / technical schools, and other post-secondary institutions looking for students with your specific interests, talents, skills, and career goals.

You’ll also get advice about test prep, other study aids, and more. Plus, you can apply for our $7,000 Community Contribution Scholarship.

The Student Research Foundation is managing this voluntary survey for our Research Consortia. The personally identifiable data that you provide will be made available to post-secondary institutions nationwide seeking students with your qualifications. In turn, they may send you valuable information which could help you better choose a college or career pathway. Your data will also be shared with ASL Marketing, Inc., which licenses data to trusted organizations and businesses whose products and services may match the interests you have identified in this survey.
