NCBC Scholarship for First-Time IBCLC Exam Candidates
The cost of taking the IBCLC exam may be a financial hardship for some candidates. The North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition is offering two $300 scholarships for IBCLC exam candidates interested in building a sustainable and supportive breastfeeding environment in North Carolina. The scholarship award may be applied to registration for the exam, transportation, meals or lodging directly related to taking the exam. Persons who will receive monies from employers for passing the exam are not eligible for the scholarship.
The candidate must be eligible / expect to be eligible to take the upcoming IBCLC exam. If the candidate does not take the exam, the scholarship money must be returned.
The candidate must demonstrate active involvement in the NC breastfeeding community. The expectation is that this will continue for one year after certification or the scholarship money will be returned.
This scholarship is only available for first-time certification. The scholarship may not be used for re-certification fees.
All scholarships for 2013 have been awarded. We will post additional information about applying for the 2014 scholarship by February 2014.
