Bunaíodh an sparánacht seo i 1995 i gcuimhne ar Bhreandán Ó hEithir, craoltóir, iriseoir, scríbhneoir agus iar-mhac léinn de chuid na hOllscoile le síntiúis óna chairde.

Is fiú €1,500 an sparánacht agus bronnfar í gach bliain ar mhac léinn lánaimseartha dochtúireachta i gColáiste na nDán, na nEolaíochtaí Sóisialta agus an Léinn Cheiltigh atá sa chéad/dara/tríú/ceathrú bliain dá c(h)úrsa.

Is iad an Ghaeilge, an Béarla agus Léann na hÉireann na príomhdhisciplíní as a roghnófar iarrthóirí. Ag brath ar an réimse taighde, d’fhéadfadh disciplíní eile (m.sh., an Stair, an Pholaitíocht agus an tSocheolaíocht) a bheith san áireamh freisin le haghaidh na sparánachta. Is iad na réimsí taighde a bheas i gceist: cúrsaí litríochta (Gaeilge nó Béarla) a bhaineas le hÉirinn go príomha. Cuirfear san áireamh freisin réimsí eile léinn a dhíreos ar léann, ar chultúr nó ar shochaí na hÉireann.

  • Tabharfaidh an t-iarrthóir a roghnófar seimineár in ábhar a chuid taighde le linn thréimhse na sparánachta.
  • Tig leis an sparánacht a bheith sa bhreis ar aon deontas, scoláireacht nó eile a bheas ag an té a roghnófar, ach tig leis an mbord measúnóirí tús áite a thabhairt d’iarrthóirí nach bhfuil aon mhaoiniú eile acu dá gcúrsa dochtúireachta.
