Gaelic College Endowment Fund

About the fund

The only institution of its kind in North America, students of all ages and skill levels visit Colaisde na Gàidhlig | The Gaelic College in St. Ann’s, Cape Breton every year to study under some of the finest instructors in Nova Scotia Gaelic culture.

This fund was established in memory of Nancy MacLean, who passed away on September 2, 2020. Nancy was known for her love of Cape Breton fiddle music and all that she did to support and share the wonderful traditions of Celtic culture through programs at The Gaelic College.

Purpose

Each year, Colaisde na Gàidhlig/The Gaelic College proudly awards scholarships and bursaries to students pursuing Gaelic culture, music, language, crafts, customs, and traditions thanks to generous annual donations from community members and corporate partners. To continue Nancy’s mission, the Nancy MacLean Bursary was created to provide scholarships for youth enrolling in music and dance. This endowment fund will ensure this bursary will be able to continue to support youth and make it easier for them to participate in the programs at the College.
