The Gaelic Books Council provides assistance for publishers who wish to publish Scottish Gaelic literature by offering funding opportunities through commission and publication grants. The Gaelic Books Council is not a publisher; however, we can provide advice and guidance regarding the next step towards publication.
Applications are invited on a quarterly basis during the financial year (April-March), and are assessed within a designated timeframe. Please note, a decision regarding your application may be delayed if you fail to submit all requested material.
The Grants Committee decides whether applications should be supported and the level of funding that should be provided. The committee is made up of selected members of the Board of the Gaelic Books Council. For 2023-24, the Grants Committee comprises Catriona MacIsaac, Shona Henderson and Peigi MacVicar.
The next deadline for grant applications: 16th June 2023 (for the August Grants Committee meeting)
The next meeting of the Grants Committee: 30th May 2023
