This historic bequeathed fund is able to support Ministers who wish to study Gaelic for preaching purposes or to enable Gaelic learning projects within a parish.

Church of Scotland Ministers of full-time word and sacrament can apply for funding.
The fund is administered by Faith Nurture.

A total of £8000 is available from the fund each year. Applications open on 1 November 2021 and must be received by 31st December 2021 to be considered for the annual allocation of grants for 2022.

Projects can be funded for a maximum of 3 years, however the annual application process is still required.
Decisions will be made in January and grants will be paid upon the submission of receipts. A 300 word report on the impact of the work should be submitted along with receipts.
