Gaeltacht Scholarship Scheme for Parents/Guardians 2024 is now open

Would you like to attend a Gaeltacht course this Summer? We are now accepting applications for the Gaeltacht Scholarship Scheme for Parents/Guardians.

The Teanga Tí department of Glór na nGael hopes that parents of families in which Irish is the spoken language or whose children are attending a Gaelscoil will avail of this opportunity to use one of the scholarships in order to improve their own command of the language.

Applications are welcome from parents/guardians who meet the following criteria; 

  1. Irish is the language spoken in the home or a child/children attend(s) a Gaelscoil
  2. You are happy to provide evidence you attended a recognised course and accept that payments cannot be made until this evidence is provided to Glór na nGael
  3. You are happy to provide feedback on the effectiveness of the scheme.

*The scholarships are valued at €500 and will be awarded to those who meet the criteria. The scholarship can help towards course costs or accommodation. Courses at the following recognised colleges will be considered:

  • Coláiste na Rinne
  • Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne
  • Oideas Gael
  • Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta
  • Coláiste Naomh Éanna
  • Comharchumann Ráth Chairn

You can find the form to fill here Scoláireachtaí Gaeltachta 2024

Glór na nGael is accepting applications until 12:00 noon 19 July 2024.

*The number of scholarships are limited therefore we would advise you to apply as early as possible.

Glór na nGael is grateful to Foras na Gaeilge for funding this scheme.
