Tribal/Native Scholarship:
Thanks to the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, a limited number of scholarships are also available to support tribal/native representatives’ participation in the Sixth National Breastfeeding Coalitions Conference. The vision of the scholarship is to provide support to talented and dedicated individuals who are new, emerging, or aspiring breastfeeding leaders in native communities.  It is open to tribal/native individuals who are actively involved in collaborative efforts to support breastfeeding in their communities. Preference will be given to applicants who have never attended a USBC Coalitions Conference, and for whom attendance at the conference would not be possible without this support.

The application deadline is Sunday, May 8, 2016. Use the online form to apply: Following Fish: One Man’s Journey into the Food and Culture of the Indian Coast
