Comhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta OÉ sa Léann Éireannach agus Ceilteach

Cuireadh an Chomhaltacht Iardhochtúireachta seo, maoinithe ag Ciste Adam Boyd Simpson agus Eleanor Boyd, ar fáil do chomórtas i measc céimithe OÉ in 2016.

Is é €80,000 an luach a bhí ar an gComhaltacht (€40,000 in aghaidh na bliana ar feadh dhá bhliain).

Is é príomhchuspóir na Comhaltachta seo ná chun spreagadh agus tacaíocht a thabhairt d’iarrthóir iardhochtúireachta ar shárchaighdeán acadúil a dtaighde scolártha a chur chun cinn i réimse an Léinn Éireannaigh agus Cheiltigh. Beifear ag súil gurb é toradh an taighde ná go gcuirfear go mór leis an eolas agus gur fiú é a fhoilsiú agus go gcuirfear leis an gcultúr foghlama sna comh-institiúidí.
