Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund



The Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund (USBF) is seeking digital content projects. The projects should be aimed at supporting learning about aspects of Ulster-Scots such as language, culture and heritage. These projects will be delivered online and may include interactive elements that support active learning. Proposals for projects intended for a range of audiences will be considered. These might include school-based audiences (any Key Stage), children and young people not in a school learning environment and adults of all ages.

Content should be engaging and may include a variety of media.

As with television content the overarching aim is to ensure that the heritage, culture and language of Ulster-Scots are expressed through the project remains. Specific guidance on the type of projects envisaged is detailed below.

Television and Radio Production
In addition to digital content applications the USBF is still open to television and radio production applications. In these cases, the standard USBF guidelines apply including the requirement for a broadcaster to be attached to the project.

All applications including supporting documentation must be received by Monday 28th June 2021. All applications will be assessed with decisions intended to be made by in early August 2021.


For further details including on who can apply, what types of projects may be supported and the level of funding available please read the digital content application call guidelines.
