The NCIDQ Tuition Reimbursement Fund supports IIDA Associate members seeking their NCIDQ credentials. Interior designers that hold an NCIDQ certificate are able to demonstrate their skills, experience, and knowledge of core competencies in code-regulated interiors ensuring the protection of public health, safety, and welfare.

The NCIDQ Tuition Reimbursement Fund will award financial assistance to IIDA Associate members twice annually whom have completed and passed all three sections of the NCIDQ exam. The award is open twice annually, in the spring and in the fall after each exam period.

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.
