Tugann an scoláireacht seo deis do bhaill an CLG an Dioplóma a dhéanamh in Ollscoil Uladh. This scholarship affords GAA members in Ulster an opportunity to study on Ulster University’s Diploma in Irish.
Ulster GAA is unable to confirm the availability of funds for the Gaeilge sa Chlub 2020-2021 scholarship scheme due to the far-reaching implications of COVID-19 on the organisation.
Upon careful consideration, Ulster GAA management has decided to forego a final decision on the availability of the funds for the 2020-2021 academic year until late 2020. Ulster GAA advises any Ulster University Diploma students to register on and continue with their course if they are in a position to do so without relying on a fee reduction scholarship. Should the scheme launch in 2020, all interested parties will be informed, as will the wider GAA community through this website, and on our social media channels.
The Gaeilge sa Chlub (‘Irish in the Club’) scholarship scheme for adult learners of Irish is a joint initiative from Ulster GAA and Ulster University. This enterprise aims to promote the use of Irish within clubs throughout Ulster by providing financial assistance to GAA members who sign up for a Diploma in Irish Language.
The continued success of this Ulster GAA and Ulster University collaboration provides financial support for GAA members and continues to be a fantastic pathway to a high level of proficiency in Irish. This partnership not only opens the door to third level education for many, but also allows GAA clubs to benefit from an increased awareness and promotion of Irish language.
