The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition and UC San Diego Lactation Programs taught by Gini Baker, RN, MPH, IBCLC are pleased to offer a scholarship for the Lactation Educator Counselor Course.

This scholarship will provide $595 of the registration fee. The student receiving the scholarship will pay $100. The course meets April 24-25-26 & May 22-23, 2018 from 8:30 am – 5 pm at University City Center in San Diego.  Applicant must be a resident of San Diego or Imperial County.

The SDCBC changed the criteria for scholarship applicants!  It is no longer a requirement that the applicant is also a paid member of the Coalition.  The SDCBC does not want to exclude any scholarship candidates because of financial hardship.  Furthermore, the scholarship recipient will receive a one-year membership in the San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition, which we hope will encourage active and ongoing participation in SDCBC activities and events!
