Funding for projects that will bring Scottish and Irish Gaelic communities together!

Bòrd na Gàidhlig are happy to announce that the Colmcille Grants scheme has opened to application for projects beginning between 1 April and 31 December 2024.

Colmcille is a partnership between Foras na Gaeilge in Ireland and Bòrd na Gàidhlig in Scotland. The funding scheme was established to foster communication and collaboration between the language communities of Scottish and Irish Gaelic.

Applications can be made for up to £12,500 of funding to support projects which will bring Gaelic and Irish speakers together, and also for Gaelic speakers looking to undertake an Irish course.

This year’s scheme will particularly look to support projects which:

  • Promote the use of Gaelic or Irish through the arts
  • Use heritage to bring Gaelic/Irish communities together and promote the status of the languages
  • Bring young speakers of Gaelic and Irish together through events and school projects/trips
  • Promote communication and sharing of knowledge and best practice among Gaelic and Irish speakers

This scheme is currently open until 3pm on Tuesday 20 February 2024.
