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.

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

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. The Kindlund Family has fully funded the $270,000 Foundation scholarship endowment.
