At present, Oifig na Gaeilge offer two different scholarships. The first scholarship, the Gaeltacht Scholarship, is offered to both DIT staff and DIT students, and its objective is to provide the recipients with an opportunity to attend a language course and to immerse themselves in an environment where the Irish language is used primarily as a means of communication, in one of the many Gaeltacht communities that we have in Ireland. Please see here for further information.
The second scholarship, the BÚA Scholarship, is offered to DIT students, both current and incoming first year students, and its objective is to provide the recipients with the skills necessary to organise and to provide opportunities for their peers in using the Irish language as a means of communication here at third level education in DIT. This initiative commenced in September 2017 and we are now welcoming applications for BÚA 2018/19. Please see here for further information.
