I Know I Want to Become an IBCLC. Are There Scholarship Opportunities Available?
Like any career path you may choose, becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant has a number of requirements, and they usually cost money. We believe you should be able to follow your dreams and become an integral part of the healthcare community as an IBCLC. Your socioeconomic background should not be a deciding factor. Because of this belief, we have created a list of some of the opportunities for scholarships and grants available to those seeking a career as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
Since becoming an IBCLC is a certification process and not a degree, time spent acquiring the education and clinical hours that qualify you to sit the exam are often not covered by traditional financing or scholarship/grant opportunities. The organizations listed are making strides to break down the barriers that stand in the way of many people getting the lactation education they require to become an IBCLC.
