Líofa 2024 opens for applications


launch of 2022 bursary scheme

Department for Communities has today announced the 2024 Líofa Gaeltacht Bursary Scheme is open for applications from Monday 4 March 2024.

The Gaeltacht provides attendees with an opportunity to immerse themselves in an Irish speaking community, increase their knowledge and use of Irish through attending classes whilst taking part in a wide range of cultural activities including sport and music through the medium of Irish.

The Gaeltacht Bursary Scheme is open to students whose parents are in receipt of a means-tested benefit, or adult learners in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits. As demand for the bursary is very high, preference is given to those adults or students who have not previously received a bursary and who meet the criteria set out in the application form.

Applications can be made online at https://consultations.nidirect.gov.uk/dfc/l-ofa-gaeltacht-bursary-scheme-2024 or by contacting Líofa directly on 028 9051 5114.

The scheme will close on Monday 25 March 2024.
