Galway-based Chief Whip and Minister of State Séan Kyne has today announced a new fund worth €250,000, to provide third-level students with an opportunity to live with Gaeltacht families for three months, while attending a third-level course for an entire semester.

A subsidy worth €17 per day will be provided, enabling third-level colleges to offer a semester in the Gaeltacht to their students. 

This amounts to a subsidy worth up to almost €1500 per student and will be payable to families providing accomodation.

The measure is expected to accomodate up to 175 students who have Irish as a core subject in their University course, or who require a high level of competency in Irish to work in the public service.
