The Mike Molino RV Learning Center’s Scholarship program encourages deserving 
college undergraduates to apply for the annual college award of $2,500. The program provides financial assistance to help foster the NEXT GENERATION of RV INDUSTRY LEADERS. Therefore, an important 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 college. RV dealers and industry related companies are able to offer this opportunity to their staff and dependents of their employees.

A poster publicizing the scholarship is available through the RV Learning Center. Dealers may display them in the workplace to alert employees of the opportunity.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Must be accepted into a four-year college or university as a rising sophomore, junior or senior college undergraduate student.
  • Have a 2.8 or better GPA and a minimum of a 1040 SAT score or 22 ACT score.

The scholarship program is possible through the generosity of the Kindlund Family. Newt and the late Joanne Kindlund founded Holiday RV Superstores—the first publicly-traded RV dealership. The Kindlunds sold the company in 1999. The Kindlund Family has fully funded the $270,000 Foundation scholarship endowment.
