Scholarship Fund Contributions
HPC Scholarships are dependent on donations from our supporters. These individuals recognize the value in our conferences and the need to provide education and networking opportunities to build the next generation of home performance professionals.

All proceeds donated are used towards scholarships.
Each scholarship provides an opportunity to further the advancement of the building/home performance industry. Scholarship recipients from all sectors, with various barriers and in any stage of their careers, are awarded funding to assist in their participation at HPC’s educational events. Donors may designate contributions to support specific types of recipients (i.e., women, students, or attendees from a specific sector within the industry) to encourage diverse participation.

Here's what past scholarship recipients had to say about their experiences:
"I am extremely grateful to have received a scholarship for the 2016 ACI National Home Performance Conference in Austin, Texas. The diverse class selection allowed me learn about the latest in weatherization policy and practices across a wide array of home performance topics. I enjoyed the many networking opportunities at the conference; there is nothing better than discussing weatherization with like-minded peers. I definitely came away from the 2016 ACI National Home Performance Conference with new ideas to try out and some new friends."
“I just returned from the ACI conference (Austin, 2016) and wish to thank those that made it possible for me to attend. It was a fantastic learning, growing and connecting opportunity that was very meaningful to my work.”
"I wanted to thank the ACI organization again so much for letting me attend ACI's 2012 Annual Leadership Summit and National Home Performance Conference in Baltimore in March. There were so many choices, so many experts, so many excellent presentations, so much useful information that my only problem was deciding which to attend."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank your organization for sponsoring my scholarship. As a woman-owned company, I was able to gain so much insight into the business."
“The Home Performance Coalition scholarship I received brought me to Austin, Texas to one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. The conference was enlightening, informative and a lot of fun."
"To be surrounded by a room of believers - those who dedicate their businesses and programs in combating the issues of health and safety, comfort and energy inefficiency in homes, was much like being in a utopic world. The Home Performance Contractor Scholarship afforded me the opportunity to be surrounded by difference makers, carbon emission reducers and forward thinkers. I will forever be grateful for the amount of resources, peer group discussions and mentorships I received during and post conference. Not to mention Continuing Education Units! I hope to see old and meet new friends at the next conference."
