USLCA is excited to launch our newest program, an IBCLC scholarship fund to aid marginalized communities in their goal of becoming an IBCLC. As funds are available, USLCA will offer two types of scholarships twice a year, one breastfeeding education scholarship and one exam fee scholarship. This program will be run 100% on donated funds. In an effort to secure donations, we are opening a merchandise store and collecting designated donations.

For those that aspire to be an IBCLC, we recognize that it may come with financial challenges. In an effort to increase the representation of marginalized communities within the profession, we are setting aside these funds to provide support, exclusively, to those that identify themselves as a part of this community. We will begin accepting applications for our Spring scholarship starting March 1st with the deadline to apply being March 31st. Scholarship winner will be announced mid April! This cycle, thanks to the generosity of Lactation Education Resources, we are able to award one complimentary 95-hour LER course scholarship.
