Drs. Ruth Lawrence & Audrey Naylor Legacy Scholarship
Deadline: Monday, May 5, 2014, 8:00 p.m. ET
The Drs. Ruth Lawrence & Audrey Naylor Legacy Scholarship was established in 2014 to honor their lifelong achievement in the field. The scholarship will be offered each year the National Breastfeeding Coalitions Conference is held. The vision of the scholarship is to provide support to talented and dedicated individuals who are new, emerging, or aspiring breastfeeding coalition leaders. In 2014, two recipients will be selected to receive this scholarship.
The scholarship is open to individuals who are actively involved with a state, territorial, tribal, local, or cultural breastfeeding coalition in the United States. Preference will be given to applicants who have never attended a USBC Coalitions Conference, who are working with a coalition serving a state or community (geographic or cultural) with breastfeeding rates that are below the U.S. national rate, and for whom attendance at the conference would not be possible without this support.
Application for scholarship funds must be made on the online form.
Complimentary conference registration (includes all plenary and concurrent sessions, conference materials, entry to exhibits, Saturday's Opening Dessert Reception, Sunday's Awards Luncheon, Sunday and Monday breakfasts, and all refreshment breaks);
Complimentary registration to the following optional conference events: Friends of USBC Reception on Sunday evening (includes dinner), and the Day of Action on Monday afternoon (includes lunch);
Round-trip economy-class airfare from the applicant's home airport to the Washington DC metropolitan area, booked at least four weeks prior to departure date (up to $500 in value);
Two nights (Saturday & Sunday) shared lodging in the conference hotel;
Special recognition at the Awards Luncheon on Sunday, seated at the head table with Drs. Lawrence and Naylor.
Registration for the pre-conference workshops;
Meals while in transit to/from the conference, meals before or after the start/end time of the conference, or meals outside of the official conference events;
Airport ground transportation (the conference hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to/from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and it is also accessible via the Metro);
Airfare above $500, airline baggage fees or other fees for internet, entertainment, or food and beverages;
Additional nights lodging outside of the two nights (Saturday & Sunday) during conference;
The other one-half of the hotel room cost, for those who prefer a single room.
Scholarship Review Process
Reviewers will be members of the USBC Awards Committee, comprised of USBC member organization representatives. Each application will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Awardees will be announced and all applicants notified by June 6.
Scoring of submissions will be based on the following criteria:
Is the applicant actively involved with at least one breastfeeding coalition?
Is the applicant a new, emerging, or aspiring leader within a breastfeeding coalition?
Is the coalition serving a state or community (geographic or cultural) with breastfeeding rates that are below the U.S. national rate?
Would this be the applicant's first time attending a USBC Coalitions Conference?
Would the applicant be able to attend the conference without scholarship support?
Does the applicant have well-developed plans for sharing and disseminating what is learned at the conference?
Terms & Conditions
The USBC Awards Committee will be under no obligation to award scholarships in any given year, and shall not be obligated to furnish reasons for its decision to award any given applicant.
A scholarship may be suspended or terminated at any time, either at the recipient's request or if in the opinion of the USBC Awards Committee or Board of Directors:
the recipient's performance is unsatisfactory; OR
the recipient fails to observe the conditions of the scholarship; OR
the recipient fails to attend the conference.
Recipients that are unable to attend the conference for which scholarship funding has been successfully awarded will notify the USBC Office in writing of this fact. In the event that a flight has already been booked at the time a scholarship is terminated or suspended, and the recipient chooses to use the value of that flight towards a future personal trip, then the recipient is required to reimburse USBC for the value of the flight.
