The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) is now accepting applications for the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship. This year, in addition to participating weatherization assistance program contractors, U.S. military veterans are now eligible to apply. The deadline to apply for the 2019 scholarship is November 30, 2018.

The Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship was developed to honor the life, memory, and work of Jon Siemen, BPI Technical Relations Representative, who passed away in March 2015. The scholarship is intended to help individuals in the industry who are working to make a difference in the comfort, health, safety, and energy efficiency of our homes.

BPI awards this scholarship to four recipients annually. Recipients of the scholarship will be able to take the online and field exams for one of BPI’s 14 professional certifications or take the exam to obtain BPI’s Building Science Principles (BSP) Certificate of Knowledge, at no cost. BPI will also help the scholarship recipients with training and exam coordination.

To be eligible for the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship, an individual must currently work with a weatherization assistance program or they must be a United States military veteran. If selecting a certification that has prerequisites, they must present documentation showing they meet the prerequisites for that certification.
