Bunaíodh  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 gach bliain í ar mhac léinn lánaimseartha dochtúireachta i gColáiste na nDán, na nEolaíochtaí Sóisialta agus an Léinn Cheiltigh atá sa chéad/dara/tríú/cheathrú 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.

Is é 30 Samhain 2016 an spriocdháta d’iarratais i mbliana. Is féidir le hiarrthóirí litir iarratais maille le sampla scríbhneoireachta (nach faide ná 3,000 focal) a sheoladh ar an ríomhphost i nGaeilge nó i mBéarla chuig Coláiste na nDán, na nEolaíochtaí Sóisialta agus an Léinn Cheiltigh (artspostgrad@nuigalway.ie), roimh 5in, 30 Samhain 2016. Ba cheart na focail ‘Sparánacht Uí Eithir’ a chur i líne ábhair an ríomhphoist agus ní mór gach cáipéis a bheith i bhformáid PDF
