DIT Students:

Current DIT students can apply for a scholarship to spend a week learning Irish with Oideas Gael in Gleann Cholm Cille, Co. Donegal - any week from the 2nd of June until the end of August at any level. The Oifig na Gaeilge scholarship will cover the tuition fees and the cost of self catering accommodation and students must pay €50 and their travel and food expenses, except for the courses taking place in Gleann Fhinne from the 21 July – 4th August 2018 which are more expensive as no self catering accommodation is available.

At the end of the course, a short feedback report on the summer course must be completed by all recipients of the scholarship.
