An INCIID First: IVF Scholarships!
Scholarships are reviewed monthly. Deadlines are the last working day of each month.


The InterNational Council for Infertility Information Dissemination (INCIID -- pronounced “inside”) has the first and only national program designed to help individuals and couples -- From INCIID the Heart -- It provides an  In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Scholarship to those in need.
  
 
 

Nancy Hemenway, INCIID Founder and Executive Director says that “infertility care is sometimes portrayed as ‘wealthy couples creating designer babies.’  That’s because only about 10% of insurance carriers cover IVF.  But nothing could be further from the truth.  The From INCIID the Heart is an important step in helping to eliminate the barrier preventing many couples from having children.

 

There are at least five million infertile couples in the U.S., and of those, approximately
two million are unable to conceive without IVF treatment.  The majority have no insurance coverage for IVF and its associated medications, which can range in cost between $10,000 and $15,000 per couple.

 

INCIID has arranged for a number of respected IVF clinics in the U.S. to donate their expertise and state-of-the-art facilities so that patients who do not have the financial resources may have the opportunity to build a family. The program will cover most of the basic IVF expenses.

Couples with financial and medical need may be eligible for participation in the program. Final committee selections and decisions take cost-of-living in different regions of the country into account  Applicants will be required to provide copies of their most recent tax returns and paystubs and supply a letter from their doctor recommending IVF as medically necessary.  Those selected will also partner with INCIID and have a small fund raising requirement.
“Our goal,” says Hemenway, “is to give those without insurance coverage an opportunity to fulfill their dream of becoming parents.

READ the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) FIRS. Once you read the FAQ, download the application located at the end of the FAQ.

INCIID, a non-profit organization, is the world’s largest source of information on Infertility and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL) and provides support to thousands of couples and individuals hoping to build a family.

* All recipient/finalist cycles are subject to a final medical review and determination on whether the donated treatment is appropriate for the recipient. INCIID  may make changes in policies, procedures, offerings, and requirements at any time. The fund raising requirement in no way guarantees a cycle of IVF.
