Felix Biancuzzo Scholarship

Scholarship Policies

Who Should Apply

Only first-time IBLCE exam candidates who are eligible to take the IBLCE exam in the year after the scholarship is awarded may apply for the current scholarship year. Previous winners of the Felix Biancuzzo Memorial Scholarship may not apply. The Felix Biancuzzo scholarship is not a need-based award. The winner(s) will be chosen by a Selection Committee comprised of Marie Biancuzzo and Breastfeeding Outlook staff members according to the applicant's demonstrated ability to:

  • Complete the scholarship application.
  • Initiate self-learning and develop own knowledge and skills.
  • Become actively aware of and involved in professional or community service activities related to breastfeeding; preference will be given to those who have been active members of breastfeeding coalitions or groups.
