Posted: 14 May, 2015

Oifig na Gaeilge is offering a limited number of scholarships to fulltime DIT staff and students who would like to spend a week in the Gaeltacht on an Irish language course this summer.

Fulltime DIT staff who would like to participate on an Irish language course in the Gaeltacht at any level may apply for the scholarship. The scholarship is worth 150 euro per person and the days spent on the Gaeltacht course are recognised by Human Resources as training days but you must receive prior permission from your line manager to attend any course.

Students can apply for a scholarship to spend a week learning Irish with Oideas Gael in Gleann Cholm Cille, Co. Donegal anytime from June until the end of August at any level. Oifig na Gaeilge's scholarship will cover the tuition fees and the cost of self-catering accommodation and students must pay 50 euro and their travel expenses.
