Students enrolling in accredited colleges or universities in the 2021-22 academic year are invited to apply for scholarships from the Tim DeWitt HARVEST Education Foundation, which supports careers in the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing, self-storage industries.
While the foundation offers support for students entering those specific fields, scholarships do not require recipients to pursue careers in those industries. The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is April 9, 2021.
Last year, 18 college-bound students received scholarships of between $500 and $1,250. The foundation has awarded more than $373,000 in financial aid for college-bound students since 1991.
“The Tim DeWitt HARVEST Education Foundation has given almost 650 scholarships in its 30 years of existence,” said Bill Sheffer, executive director of MMHA/RVCA and Self-Storage Association of Michigan. “Our membership and staff are proud to have helped so many students work toward advanced education. In offering these scholarships, we are introducing students to career opportunities they might not have realized are available in the RV, camping, manufactured homes, and self-storage businesses.”
The scholarships provide a unique career path for students while providing the industries “new critical thinking and fresh perspectives,” Sheffer said.
