In an effort to support the findings of the ILCA 2014 Lactation Summit, Birthingway is committed to helping advance the Lactation profession. In particular, Birthingway supports education of individuals from historically low-resourced or marginalized communities.
The tuition-waiver program is for community students interested in working in the Lactation professional field to better support under-served communities.
Students must show enthusiasm for lactation consultation work, as well as demonstrate their ability to bring this work back to their specific communities.
This Partial Tuition Waiver Award covers one half of tuition costs for the courses listed by term below. Award recipient will pay full price for textbooks, course packs, lab fees, registration fees, tech fees, and any other relevant fees.
- Introduction to Breastfeeding Theory (BRF131q), 3 credits

The award is limited to one recipient per academic year.
Birthingway strives to provide diversity and multi-vocal trainings by not being redundant in our awards of tuition waivers. Applications are evaluated based on the population they are planning to work with, and the level of need in that under-served community/population.
Students currently enrolled in the Lactation or Midwifery Program will not be considered for the tuition waiver.
