Applications for the Mike Molino RV Learning Center College Scholarship Program are now available online.
According to a press release, college undergraduates that currently work in the RV industry or are a dependent of an RV industry employee and are majoring in business, finance, engineering, accounting, or other RV Industry-related fields are eligible to apply. The deadline to apply, with all required items submitted, is June 28.
A $2,500 award will be applied to the cost of tuition for the 2019-2020 school year. This will be the 29th scholarship provided under the program.
Dealers are encouraged to extend this opportunity to the dealership team because of their employment in the RV industry. A primary factor for awarding the scholarship is an applicant’s background of RV industry employment or a desire to work in the RV business after completing post-secondary education.
All materials noted above must be received by the Learning Center no later than June 28, 2019. Dealer principals and their family and dependents, are not eligible for the award.
The scholarship program is possible through the generosity of the Kindlund Family. Newt and the late Joanne Kindlund 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 RV Learning Center Board of Directors.
Posters publicizing the scholarship are available as a free download from the RV Learning Center. To obtain an application, poster, or more information, click here.
