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 2016 Recipients

  • Veronica Bassano, Assoc. IIDA – New York Chapter
  • Kyra Bell, IIDA – Intermountain Chapter
  • Michelle Brune, IIDA – Mid America Chapter
  • Jane Hallinan, IIDA – Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware Chapter
  • Stacy Kerl, IIDA – Carolinas Chapter
  • Jenna M. Scagliotti, IIDA – Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware Chapter
  • Kaylyn Schmer, IIDA – Rocky Mountain 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 2016) resulting in NCIDQ Certification may request consideration for reimbursement.

Maximum reimbursement will be $1096. 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 pays a portion of the cost of the exam, the IIDA Member can still apply for reimbursement for the portion he/she has paid.

Members are requested to forward their application and documentation (NCIDQ notification of passing and proof of payment, photocopies are permissible) confirming the above listed items via US mail, fax or email to IIDA Headquarters by 5 P.M./Central Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.

Upon receipt of complete documentation, the IIDA Member’s request will be placed with all others received by the stated deadline. The Foundation will award financial assistance to seven (7) IIDA Members. The process for determining the recipients will be a lottery system. Members who have been selected will be notified in September 2016.
