NCIDQ Tuition Reimbursement Fund

With an inaugural gift from Mannington Commercial, this Fund offers IIDA Associate Members an opportunity to apply for financial assistance upon passing all three parts of the NCIDQ exam. The following IIDA Members are the most recent recipients:

Winter 2018 Recipients

  • Mandy Christoph, Assoc. IIDA – Wisconsin Chapter
  • Emily Gibson, Assoc. IIDA – Texas Oklahoma Chapter
  • Joelle Lujan, IIDA – Hawaii Pacific Chapter
  • Vernita Lytle, Assoc. IIDA Northern Pacific Chapter
  • Andrea Moholt, IIDA – Carolinas Chapter
  • Whitney Reynolds, IIDA –  Intermountain Chapter
  • Katrina Rutledge, IIDA –  Texas Oklahoma Chapter



Only IIDA Associate Members in good standing are eligible to participate.

Members who have taken and passed all required parts of the exam – administered in April 2018  resulting in NCIDQ Certification may request consideration for reimbursement.

Maximum reimbursement will be $1100. Reimbursement amounts are contingent upon whether the member took all three parts at one time, or sat for the three parts at three separate exam times. In the event that a member’s firm/employer paid a portion of the cost of the exam, the member can still apply for reimbursement for the portion the member paid.

Members are requested to forward their application and documentation confirming NCIDQ notification of passing and proof of payment (photocopies permissible) to Aisha Williams, senior director of industry relations and special events, at by Friday Aug. 17, 20185 p.m. Central time.

Upon receipt of complete documentation, the member’s request will be collected with the applications received by the stated deadline. The Foundation will award financial assistance to seven IIDA Members. The process for determining the recipients will be a lottery system. Members who have been selected will be notified in September 2018.
