Applications for 2019 Diversity scholarships open on July 1, 2019. Closing date for applications: the last day of World Breastfeeding Week, August 7, 2019. Winners will be announced on August 15, 2019.

The fine print: Diversity 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 below. Scholarships must be taken for the Sept – Nov 2019 conference and cannot be redeemed for money. Previous scholarship recipients are not eligible for further scholarships.
