Founders of RE/MAX, Dave and Gail Liniger, recently donated $2 million to establish the Liniger Honor, Service, and Commitment Scholarship. This scholarship program is especially dear to Dave Liniger as he served in Vietnam. After his service in Vietnam, Dave and his wife revolutionized the real estate industry when they founded RE/MAX in Denver in 1973.
The scholarship program was established to assist university students currently enrolled in full-or part-time undergraduate and graduate programs who have participated in combat operations and have been awarded a campaign medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, a service combat medal, or Purple Heart.
“The Liniger Honor Service, and Commitment Scholarship will immediately and personally impact 200 of CSU’s courageous and outstanding student-veterans,” said Brett Anderson, vice president for University Advancement. “We could not be more grateful to Gail and Dave Liniger for their contribution to honoring this important segment of our campus community.”
“We are so fortunate to work within an organization that puts so much time and effort into recognizing and fulfilling the needs of individuals that serve our country,” said Gene Vaughan, Broker/Co-owner of RE/MAX Alliance in Fort Collins. “To see students at our local college be recognized for their service and support of our Country by the Linigers, it is truly an honor to be able to say we are apart of the RE/MAX family.”
The scholarship program at CSU has seen great success since it’s launch. Within a two-week period, over 150 applications were received. It is estimated that 200 of CSU’s student-veterans will be immediately and personally impacted by the program.
