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 2021-22, the Grants Committee comprises Donald Cameron, Morna Butcher and Catriona MacIsaac.
The next deadline for grant applications: 11th March 2022 (for the February 2022 Grants Committee meeting)
The next meeting of the Grants Committee: January/February 2022
