IIDA Northland
Membership Scholarship Application


IIDA Northland is offering a limited number of scholarships for new or renewing members who have difficulty paying their dues.

This scholarship application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Directors. It is the expectation that IIDA membership scholarship recipients intend to be active chapter members during their scholarship year. Please include a letter of recommendation from a current IIDA member and up to a one-page description of your motivations to apply for this scholarship.
