In summer 2016, The Retrofit Academy started its Scholarship Scheme. This enables sponsors to fund an exceptional candidate, chosen by The Academy, to attend the Professional Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management. Extensive knowledge and understanding of retrofit best practice amongst practising professionals, is absolutely key to the transformation of the UK housing stock. The Retrofit Academy and its sponsors therefore see Scholarships as a way to deliver this knowledge to retrofit professionals, who otherwise might not have been able to attend the course.
Applications were invited from local authorities, housing associations, architectural, surveying and engineering professionals, and successful applicants were required to have responsibility for specification or purchasing decisions on retrofit projects.
After an in-depth review of all the applications, in which we applied a rigorous review methodology, Scholarships were awarded to the candidates below.
