Money available to those who want to study part of their degree courses through Welsh in 2017 through the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol Scholarships.
Prospective students who would benefit from gaining extra funding during their time at university can apply for the Coleg Cymraeg scholarships.
Up to £3,000 is available to students who want to study at least 66% of their courses through Welsh and up to £1,500 for those who want to follow at least 33% through Welsh.
The William Salesbury Scholarship of £5,000 is also offered to someone who wants to follow a course that is available entirely through Welsh.

Elen Davies, who studies Journalism through the medium of Welsh at Cardiff University was delighted to find out that her course was eligible to receive financial support:
‘‘The support the money brings helps with buying learning resources and of course enjoying the university’s social life"
"The application process is easy, it only takes a few moments to complete and all you need to do is decide to study a part of your course through the medium of Welsh.”
The closing date to receive applications for the Main Scholorship is January 15, 2017.
