The MILCC Scholarship Fund

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!

The MILCC Scholarship is available once per year for the two IBCLC examination administrations and recertification period for the following year. IBCLC candidates are eligible to apply if they fully meet the examination eligibility criteria or recertification requirements and need financial support to certify or recertify to help breastfeeding families. Please consider a donation to the MILCC Scholarship fund to support future and recertifying IBCLCs helping mothers and babies worldwide.

The JoAnne W. Scott Scholarship Fund

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!

The JoAnne W. Scott Scholarship is available to one or more candidates with a “mother-to-mother” support background who fully meet the IBLCE exam eligibility criteria and need financial assistance to cover the fees. Depending on available funds, at least one candidate may receive a scholarship each year. Your generosity is needed to continue support of mother-to-mother support counselors in need of financial assistance. Donate to the JoAnne W. Scott Scholarship fund today!

The Emerging Leaders in Lactation Scholarship Fund

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online! 

The ELL Scholarship is available to IBCLC candidates that demonstrate leadership potential, belong to a group historically underrepresented in the profession and its leadership, and who may otherwise be unable to pursue their IBCLC credential. ELL Scholarships are made possible by donations and grants. The number of applicants supported each year, in both developed and developing countries throughout the world, depends on the available funds from these contributions. 

The Dr. Clifton Kenon Jr.
Scholarship Fund

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online! 

In 2020, IBLCE announced funding for the Dr. Clifton Kenon Jr. Scholarship as a commitment to standing in solidarity with the African-American community and reducing health inequities through the certification of lactation professionals actively working to promote public health. Support this programme to provide funding for the IBCLC examination to professionals who primarily provide lactation care to African-American clients and reduce health inequities. More information about this Scholarship will be made available in early 2021!
