The Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) recently announced the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship - a scholarship that honors the life and work of BPI Technical Relations Representative Jon Siemen, who passed away in 2015. The scholarship is intended to help industry professionals make a difference in home comfort, health, safety, and energy efficiency. Four recipients will be chosen annually, one for each of the HEP certifications. Each recipient will be able to take the exams for free. Applicants must meet the prerequisites for the certification they have chosen to apply for and - the big catch that will apply to only a few here (but we thought this was pretty cool; you may want to consider branching out into weatherization to push WAP forward) - must work within the Weatherization Assistance Program. The deadline to apply is November 30, 2016.
