About the IIDA Sustainable Design Education Fund 

The establishment of the Sustainable Design Education Fund, sponsored by Shaw Contract, is an important Foundation initiative. This fund serves as a vehicle to advance the awareness and knowledge on the topic of sustainable design.

IIDA Student, Professional, and Associate Members who take and pass the LEED Accreditation Exam may apply for consideration for tuition reimbursement. The following IIDA Members are the most recent recipients:

Winter 2018 Recipients

  • Victoria Magda, Assoc. IIDA - Oregon Chapter
  • Jessica Obrien, Assoc. IIDA - PA/NJ/DE Chapter




Only Student, Professional, and Associate Members in good standing are eligible to participate. Members who have taken and passed the exam from Jan. 1, 2018, through June 30, 2018, may request consideration for reimbursement.

Members must forward written confirmation from USGBC of passing the exam, proof of payment, and application to Aisha Williams, senior director of industry relations and special events, at by Friday, Aug. 17, 2018,  5 p.m. Central time.

Maximum reimbursement will be $350. In the event that a member’s firm pays a portion of the cost of the exam, the member can still apply for reimbursement for the portion the member paid.

The Foundation will award financial assistance to five IIDA Members. The process for determining the five recipients will be a lottery system. Recipients will be notified in September 2018.
