U.S. Gaeltacht Awards
What are they?
The Summer Gaeltacht Awards are grants to U.S. citizens who are Irish Language learners or teachers in the U.S. to spend 2-6 weeks studying the Irish language in the Gaeltacht regions of Ireland. Please note that this is not a Fulbright Award, but a grant from the Ireland-United States Commission for Educational Exchange.
The grants are sponsored by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the National Lottery of Ireland, and the Ireland-United States Commission for Educational Exchange.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds. These awards may be pushed back until late summer 2020 if neccessary. Please do discuss this possiblity with your Gaeltacht course provider of choice. We encourage candidates to submit applications by the extended deadline of 14 April 2020 and we will send relevant updates as the situation evolves.
