This 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 Action.

Awards for 2024 have now been given, applications are still welcomed whilst there remains a small amount available in the fund. The fund will close as soon as the remaining funds have been allocated.

A 300 word report on the impact of the work should be submitted along with receipts.

Projects can be funded for a maximum of three years.
