Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for hands-on educational programs that teach young people about vehicle and boat restoration. Priority will be given to programs that focus on high school and college-age students. Funding is intended to teach the specialized skills and knowledge needed to maintain vintage cars, trucks, and boats.

To some degree, the RPM Foundation has supported relevant Museums by underwriting the cost of student tours, and even helped organizations purchase restoration tools and equipment. However, hands-on training programs are more likely to be funded.
