Leitrim Co Board GAA is offering Gaeltacht Scholarships to Leitrim boys and girls as part of their promotion an ghaeilge.
These grants are open to registered and paid-up members of Leitrim clubs, boys or girls. There will be twelve grants in all available. Coiste Scór Liatroma sponsors four of these grants which are confined to young people who participated in Scór na nÓg this year. Anyone who received a scholarship in previous years is not eligible to apply again.
A draw will be made from the applications received at the February meeting of the Co Board and the successful candidates make their own arrangements to attend a college of their choice. When they return they can claim their scholarship money on production of evidence of having successfully completed the course.
Application forms can be printed from the Leitrim GAA website www.leitrimgaa.ie under Scór section or can be got from the Secretary of any GAA club or from Sean Ó Suilleabháin, Oifigeach Cultúir agus Teanga, (071- 9644227). Beidh na hiarratais le fail i ngach meanscoil sa Chontae freisin
The closing date for applications is Friday 29 January 2009.
