Daltaí na Gaeilge awards three scholarships during the month of May each year. The selection criteria are based on:
The work a person does on behalf of the language,
The work a person does on behalf of Daltaí na Gaeilge, and
The efforts a person makes to learn the Irish language (Student) or to teach the language (Teacher).
These are the 2013 Scholarships:
Student Scholarship (Ireland)

Teacher Scholarship (Ireland)
