The RV Learning Center scholarship program awards $2,500 annually to deserving college sophomore, junior and senior undergraduate students majoring in business, finance, economics, accounting or other RV-related subjects.

Dealers are able to offer this opportunity to their teams specifically because of their employment in the RV industry, according to a news release. Visit for an application.

Scholarship applicants must:

  • Have a 2.8 or better cumulative grade point average, and a 1050 minimum SAT score (1575 minimum on the 2400 point scale). A minimum ACT composite score of 22 is also acceptable.
  • Be a rising sophomore, junior or senior college undergraduate student.
  • Complete a 500-word essay on their goals and objectives for attending college.
  • Submit a copy of their Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) form which is available from guidance counselors or for download at no charge from the U.S. Department of Education at <>.
  • Demonstrate the ability and willingness to fund a portion of their educational expenses on their own.
  • Attend an accredited four-year college or university as a condition of receiving the scholarship.

All items must be submitted by June 6. Dealer principals, their families and dependents are not eligible. Please call the dealer services hotline, or e-mail if you have any questions about the scholarship program.

The scholarship program is possible due to the generosity of the Newt and Joanne Kindlund Family. The Kindlunds are the founders of Holiday RV Superstores — the first publicly traded RV dealership. The Kindlunds sold the company in 1999. Newt Kindlund remains an active participant in RV industry affairs and currently serves on The RVDA Education Foundation Board of Directors. The Kindlund Family has fully funded the $270,000 foundation scholarship endowment.
