Share the LLLove Scholarships
Apply now for one of the 2018 iLactation Little bit of LLLove Scholarships!
iLactation was founded by two IBCLC lactation consultants, Iona Macnab and SarahHung, who have spent over 20 years each also volunteering as breastfeeding supporters with La Leche League. We have enormous respect for the time given by volunteers to help mothers breastfeed all over the world so we share a little bit of LLLove with breastfeeding volunteers, to be announced on Valentine’s Day 2018.
We have three full scholarships and six half scholarships to give away to attend our upcoming Diversity, culture and infant feeding online breastfeeding conference. Please share this opportunity widely with other volunteer breastfeeding supporters.
What you need to do:
- Write about why and where you began volunteering with breastfeeding mothers in 250 words or less AND
- Write about why you would like a scholarship to attend the iLactation online conference in 100 words or less AND
- Send everything to us, including your name, address and country, to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2018.
The fine print: Little bit of LLLove scholarships are awarded at the discretion of iLactation and decisions are final. “Full scholarship” means the full conference fee is covered. “Half scholarship” means you receive a 50% discount on the applicable conference fees for your country category, and you agree to pay 50% yourself. If you do not wish to accept a half scholarship if offered, please indicate this in your application. Scholarships must be taken for the March-May 2018 conference and cannot be redeemed for money. Scholarships are not limited to LLL volunteers, volunteers from other breastfeeding support organizations are also welcome to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who do not also work as health professionals. Previous recipients are not eligible for further scholarships.
