"From INCIID the Heart" IVF Scholarship

2019 Scholarships will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received 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 through donations of funds and treatment from professional members, and consumers.    

 "Infertility care is sometimes portrayed as ‘wealthy couples creating designer babies. 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 6-7 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 $18,000 and $25,000 per couple. And  EMD Serono supports the program with donations of ovarian stimulation medications.
 
INCIID continues to gain support for the scholarship from a number of respected IVF clinics in the U.S. to donate their expertise and state-of-the-art facilities for patients who do not have the financial resources. Thes generous reproductive centers support the INCIID mission to help patients build families where they may not have the opportunity without help. The program will cover most of the basic expenses incurred during an IVF cycle.

Couples with financial and medical need may be eligible for participation in the program. The criteria are simple: No insurance covering IVF, Financial Need and Medical Infertility (as defined by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine - ASRM).  Final committee selections and decisions take cost-of-living in different regions of the country into account, applicants who may have student loan debt and a variety of other situations. Each application is processed based on an individual needs assessment.   INCIID required applicants provide copies of their most recent tax returns (2 years) and pay stubs (2 consecutive and most recent pay cycles), and supply a letter from their doctor recommending IVF as medically necessary. Selected recipients partner with INCIID in agreement to fundraise a small amount. 
Our goal is to give those without insurance coverage for IVF an opportunity to fulfill their dream of becoming parents.

* 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 fundraising agreement in no way guarantees a cycle of IVF.

The application process is on-going. If you want to be considered for the program, please read the FAQ first and then send us your application. Applications are reviewed throughout the year. Before you apply: Please get the latest version of Adobe Reader.
