Fórsa Gaeltacht Scheme for 2024

UPDATE: Applications are now closed for the 2024 Fórsa Gaeltacht grant scheme. Applicants will be notified shortly.

80 grants of €150 each are available to assist children of Fórsa members attending residential Irish language courses in Gaeltacht areas next summer.

A further 40 grants of €70 are available to assist children to attend day-only Irish language courses held outside Gaeltacht areas.

Children of Fórsa members, who are aged between 11 years and 18 years of age on 1st July 2024, are eligible to apply for the grant scheme. You can download the application form HERE.

Please note that in order to ensure as many children as possible can benefit from this scheme a child who received a scholarship in this scheme in 2023 is not eligible for receipt of the scholarship in 2024. A list of winners in 2023 is available on the Fórsa website. Only one application per child is permissible. Multiple applications for the same child will not be considered.

Applications must be received on or before 5.00pm on Friday October 6th, 2023. The draw will take place shortly thereafter. All queries should be sent to gaeltacht@forsa.ie.

Application forms can be submitted either by email to gaeltacht@forsa.ie or by post to Fórsa Head Office to the following address: General Services Committee, Gaeltacht Scheme, Fórsa, Nerney’s Court, Dublin 1, D01 R2C5. Only one method of application per applicant is allowed.
