  NYSBC announces The Increasing Diversity IBCLE                            September 2020 Exam scholarship!

We are pleased and proud to be able to provide a limited number of scholarships to eligible candidates for the IBCLC exam in September 2020. The cost of taking the IBCLC exam may be a financial hardship for some candidates. The NYSBC is offering need-based scholarship money not to exceed $1000 per calendar year to IBCLC exam candidates taking the exam for the first time.  (NYSBC will not pay for a retake of the exam if they do not pass the first time). Priority will be given to candidates of minority groups and candidates planning to serve in underserved areas of NYS. Preference will also be given to candidates meeting more than one criteria. The scholarship award may be applied to purchase study materials, the exam application fee, transportation, meals or lodging directly related travel to the exam site. Candidates will have already completed the required education in order to qualify to sit for the exam in September 2020.
