Mike Molino RV Learning Center College Scholarship Program Now Open for Applications

The Mike Molino RV Learning Center College Scholarship Program is now open for applications, and with a deadline of July 5, 2023,  undergraduate students currently employed in the RV industry, dependents of an RV industry employee, or those seeking a career in the RV industry after graduation have a chance to apply for a $2,500 award.

This scholarship is specifically designed to help foster the next generation of RV industry leaders, and it is made possible by the generosity of Joanne and Newt Kindlund, co-founders of Holiday RV Superstores, the first publicly traded RV dealership.

Newt Kindlund, who remains an active participant in RV industry affairs, is a director emeritus on the Learning Center’s board of directors.

The program requires applicants to have a 2.8 or better cumulative grade point average, provide a 500-word essay on their goals and objectives for college and career, submit a copy of their Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) form, and demonstrate the ability and willingness to fund a portion of their educational expenses on their own.

Dealer principals, their families, and dependents are not eligible for the award, and a primary factor for awarding the scholarship is an applicant’s background in RV industry employment or a desire to work in the RV industry after college.

As the RV industry in the United States continues to grow, this scholarship program plays a crucial role in supporting the industry’s future leaders.

In 2020, the RV industry experienced a surge in popularity as people looked for safe and socially distant ways to travel during the pandemic. According to the RV Industry Association, RV sales in 2020 reached a record-breaking 430,412 units, and about 600,000 units last year.

With the continued growth of the RV industry, the need for skilled and knowledgeable professionals in the field is higher than ever. The Mike Molino RV Learning Center College Scholarship Program aims to provide financial support to students who are interested in pursuing careers in the industry, helping to ensure the future of the RV industry remains bright and successful.

Posters publicizing the scholarship are available as a free download from the center. To obtain an application, poster, or more information, click here

In addition to the scholarship program, the Mike Molino RV Learning Center provides a wide range of educational resources for RV industry professionals.
