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 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. Scholarship applications for the 2020 conference will open in January 2020.

Membership Scholarships are available to individuals who are unable to afford ILCA membership due to social, economic, or political hardships. Applications will reopen in 2020.

If you have questions about either scholarship process, please email us at
