Lehman College is grateful to the Ireland-United States Commission for Educational Exchange and the Irish Government’s National Lottery. The Irish support included funding for eight years of curriculum development grants, Fulbright foreign language teaching assistants sent from Ireland to Lehman College during six years, and Gaeltacht Summer Awards for four Lehman students in 2011, three students in 2012, two students in 2013, two students in 2014, one student in 2015, and one student in 2016. In 2012-present funding was provided for our speakers series.

Our current research project involves curriculum development for our Irish Language General Education courses which enroll 25 students each semester.
