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:

Summer 2018 Recipients

  • Alexandra Y. Bonner, IIDA – Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware Chapter
  • Katrina Dunbar, IIDA – Northern Pacific Chapter
  • Ben Gilles, IIDA – Ohio Kentucky Chapter
  • Beth Ma, IIDA – Hawaii Chapter
  • Michelle Mawby, IIDA – New York Chapter
  • Tammy Romer, IIDA –  Central Florida Chapter
  • Madison Sabatelli, IIDA –  Ohio Kentucky 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 October 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 complete their application digitally through the application website between Monday, November 5, 2018 and Friday, February 8, 2019, 5 p.m. Central time. Application must include the following: 

  • NCIDQ Certificate
  • Proof of self payment (receipt or copy of statement)

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 March 2019.
