Dr Peter Rickaby Scholarship

We are delighted to announce that The Retrofit Academy CIC is offering four full-scholarships on the Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management course.

The Scholarships are in the name of Dr Peter Rickaby, who has been a longstanding supporter of The Retrofit Academy CIC. Dr Rickaby was also the Technical Author of PAS2035 and has long championed the role of Retrofit Coordinator.

The Scholarship consists of:
  • a fully-funded place on the Level 5 Diploma course via Blended Learning
  • Certification following completion of the course
  • support and mentoring from the Academy team

When to Apply

Scholarship Applications can be made at any time, but the Awards Committee will only review them four times per year. Should we receive more than one outstanding entry, more than one Scholarship may be awarded. Offers of Bursary Places may also be made, which will cover 50% of the cost.
