If you want to develop an initiative with a partner in Scotland, or which will be connected to Scottish Gaelic, this small grants scheme (scheme 1 above) is to help develop joint initiatives and partnership. When the partnership and an initiative plan have been agreed under this small grants scheme, an application can be made to the Colmcille Grants Scheme (scheme 2 above, the main Colmcille grants scheme), which gives a higher level of support, if that is needed.

If you are interested in making an application speak with Colmcille officers in Foras na Gaeilge before you fill in the application form.

  • Irish is the group’s means of communications, but the group has planned activities in the programme of activities in connection with a special interest rather than Irish itself.
