Trips to Irish colleges can be out of the reach of many but scholarships are available in many of the Irish language summer schools for many students.
Colaiste Laichtín on Inis Óirr is one such summer college which offers scholarships covering the cost of accommodation for the duration of the stay on the island.
Summer Colleges reward students who would like to improve and develop their Irish, if it is for Junior or Leaving Certificate exams or even just to gain confidence with the language according to Caomhan Ó Conghaile, Principal of the summer college.
There is also lots of fun to be had when students learn languages in a different environment to school. Various sports and other games are played in Irish such as soccer, basketball.
Courses last for three weeks and begin on June 4th, June 27th and July 20th. Application forms, rules and other information are available on http://www.colaistelaichtin.ie/
