Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) Training Scholarships

Are you interested in becoming a CLC?

We are delighted to announce that our partner, Healthy Children Project, Inc., has provided HealthConnect One with five full Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) training scholarships. These scholarships cover the cost of the course and examination fees. Both the training and examination are provided in English.

Please note that this scholarship does not cover the cost of travel or hotel stay. For more information on the CLC training dates and locations, please go to www.healthychildren.cc.

This scholarship opportunity is only available to Community-Based Doulas and Breastfeeding Peer Counselors who have been trained under the HealthConnect One curriculum and are currently doing breastfeeding support in their community. In addition, we ask that all recipients of our scholarship share their experience after the CLC training and tell briefly how it impacted their work.

In order to be considered for this scholarship, you need to complete and submit this CLC SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION by July 28, 2017, 5 PM Central Time.
