ILCA is committed to world health transformed through breastfeeding and skilled lactation care. As a result, we offer our members opportunities to engage with the organization and support others. Here are some ways you can be involved.
ILCA BREASTFEEDING BENEFACTORS PROGRAM
ILCA helps you get what you need to provide the best breastfeeding support. It also gives you the opportunity to give back to other members, all over the world. ALL members have the option to add the ILCA Breastfeeding Benefactor status to their membership. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that the ILCA programs you care about – worldwide advocacy, research, scholarships - were all made possible by your additional support. All members will receive recognition in the Journal of Human Lactation, the ILCA Website, and on a ribbon at the ILCA Conference.
ILCA is glad to offer a limited number of conference and membership scholarships annually. Scholarship funds are provided through the generous donations of our Breastfeeding Benefactors.
Conference Scholarships assist speakers and general attendees with costs incurred while attending the ILCA annual conference. Recipients of the 2018 conference scholarship award have already been selected. The 2019 conference scholarship application was open 1 February - 28 February and is now closed.
Membership Scholarships are available to individuals who are unable to afford ILCA membership due to social, economic, or political hardships. The 2018 application is closed. The 2019 membership scholarship application will open in Spring 2019.
If you have questions about either scholarship process, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
