One of these is the Incentive Scholarships, where first year students, who study at least 33% or 40 credits of their Higher Education course through the medium of Welsh, are awarded £1,500 over a three year period (£ 500 per year).
This year, the application period is between 1 March and 30 June, then a limited number between September and October 2022.
One of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai's priorities is to increase the number of Higher Education courses available through the medium of Welsh.

- Foundation Degree in Business Management (FdA) Coleg Meirion - Dwyfor, Dolgellau.
- Health and Social Care (FdA) Foundation Degree
Coleg Meirion - Dwyfor, Dolgellau.
- FDSC Sports Science (Sports Coaching) - Coleg Llandrillo
- Sports Science (Sports Coaching) Coleg Meirion - Dwyfor, Dolgellau

We hope to increase the number of Grŵp’s courses worthy of the Incentive Scholarship in the next few weeks! Look out for more exciting news!
The other good news is that students, of whatever year, can receive Grŵp LLandrillo Menai's internal bursary if they study 33% or 40 credits of their course through the medium of Welsh. A bursary worth £300 per year, for completing oral work, writing work or discussions with a lecturer in Welsh. Contact your personal tutor for more information, as the application form is simple.
