The NCIDQ Tuition Reimbursement Fund supports IIDA 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 exam fee reimbursement to IIDA Student, Professional, and Associate members 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 members an opportunity to apply for financial assistance upon passing all three parts of the NCIDQ exam.
