The Recreation Vehicle Dealer Association (RVDA) Education Foundation’s RV Learning Center Scholarship program is accepting applications for the 2005-2006 school year. 
Applicants must be employees, or dependents, at RV dealerships or other RV-related companies. Dealer principals and their dependents are not eligible. 
The program awards scholarships to rising sophomore, junior, or senior college undergraduate students interested in majoring in business, finance, economics, or accounting. Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, a 500-word essay on their goals and objectives in college, extracurricular activities, honors and financial need.
The scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the Newt and Joanne Kindlund Family. The Kindlunds founded the first publicly-traded RV dealership before selling 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, to date, has pledged $270,000 to the Foundation’s scholarship endowment.
“I am pleased the RV Learning Center is able to recognize outstanding commitment to learning with the scholarship program,” said RVDA Education Foundation Chairman of the Board Rick Horsey of Parkview RV Center, Smryna, Del.  “The industry owes the Kindlund family their thanks for funding this excellent program.”
