We are happy to announce that our Scholarship Scheme for Adults funded by Foras na Gaeilge is now open and we are accepting applications. This is a great opportunity for any adult looking to attend a Gaeltacht course this summer to apply for a scholarship valued at €250 to cover costs of a Gaeltacht course.  

To apply for a scholarship, we would like you to answer the following 3 questions: 
1. Who are you and what is your background with the Irish language?
2. Why do you wish to attend a Gaeltacht course this summer and which course do you have in mind?
3. Why do you need a scholarship and how would the support of this funding help you?

  • Your application must be written in the form of a Word Document and sent as an attachment in a email with the subject line ‘Adult Scholarship 2020’ to
  • The deadline for applications is 13:00 on Thursday the 30th of April 2020 - applications received after this date will not be accepted.
