This scheme is currently closed, with the next round expected to open towards the end of 2021.

Information about projects that received support from 2018/19 onwards can be found via GrantNav.

Colmcille is a partnership between Foras na Gaeilge in Ireland and Bòrd na Gàidhlig in Scotland. It fosters communication and collaboration between the language communities of Scottish and Irish Gaelic.

This year we are commemorating 1500 years since the birth of St Columba with a year of special events and projects.

Funding is available to help support projects which will bring Gaelic and Irish speakers together, and also for Gaelic speakers looking to undertake an Irish course.

Guidelines for Applicants and an Application Form can be found below, for either projects or Irish course support.  If you have any questions please email colmcille@gaidhlig.scot.
