Malta, NY, September 12, 2016 - The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) is proud to announce the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship Program to help industry professionals make a difference in home comfort, health, safety and energy efficiency.

The Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship has been developed to honor the life, memory, and work of Jon Siemen, BPI Technical Relations Representative, who passed away in March 2015. 

Over the years, Jon was involved in administering BPI exams, contributing to standards and certification development, performing quality assurance reviews and answering technical questions presented by contractors, candidates and proctors. Jon was a beloved member of the BPI family and is dearly missed. 

The Building Performance Institute, Inc. will award this scholarship to four recipients annually - one recipient for each of the four Home Energy Professional (HEP) certifications. To be eligible for this scholarship, an individual must work with a weatherization program and present documentation that they meet the prerequisites for the certification for which they have applied.

Recipients of the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship will take the written and field exams, for the certification designation indicated on the application, at no cost. BPI will also help the scholarship recipients with training and exam coordination.

To review the instructions and application for the Jon Siemen Memorial Scholarship, please visit www.bpi.org/SiemenScholarship. The instructions include the scholarship specifics, how to apply, who should apply, deadlines and eligibility requirements.
