Scholarship Information

The Community Lactation Access Project (CLAP) recognizes the existing institutional and racial barriers to access lactation education and training in the United States. We also recognize the predominant white culture which presently exists in lactation education and training spaces. The lack of access to lactation professionals in minority communities has contributed to lower rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration. We believe lactation support and education is  vital, and is best received when people share culture and community. 

CLAP is offering both full and partial scholarships to people who self-identify as;  People of Color (POC), Indigenous, Latinx, and LBGTQ+. Contact us at communitylactationproject@gmail.com with questions and for a link to the scholarship application (verbal applications also are accepted, email or call to arrange).
