Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund application calls

Date Posted: October 29, 2021

We are pleased to announce applications are now open for a number of Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund (USBF) calls.

Digital Content Language Production

The USBF wishes to receive a wider range of applications that focus exclusively or predominantly on Ulster-Scots language. The USBF is open to projects targeting different audiences including but not limited to fluent speakers, adult learners, child learners (any key stage), the curious including everyone in Northern Ireland who uses Ulster-Scots words or phrases, and the nostalgic including our diaspora. The call is open to projects that received development funding in the previous call as well as new projects.

Closing date: 5pm on Friday 3rd December

Drama Development

The USBF wishes to support the production of Ulster-Scots drama projects. This USBF call is to support the development, as opposed to the production, of Ulster-Scots drama projects. The call is open to both production companies and individual writers with varying levels of funding available to each.

Closing date: 5pm on Friday 3rd December

Television Production

The USBF is open for applications for television production projects that contribute to the promotion and status of the Ulster-Scots culture, heritage and language. We also strongly recommend that potential applicants engage with consultants who can provide the level of understanding of Ulster-Scots themes that will be required.

Closing date: 5pm on Monday 13th December
