The Scottish Government provides direct funding for two Scots organisations. In 2009 the Scottish Government assumed responsibility for direct funding of Scottish Language Dictionaries and the Scots Language Centre. These organisations were previously funded by the Scottish Arts Council. By providing direct funding, the Scottish Government put these organisations on a secure financial footing.
Scots Language Centre
Scottish Language Dictionaries
There are a number of organisations receiving funding from sources such as Creative Scotland which have an important role in promoting Scots. These include:-
Association for Scottish Literary Studies
Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
Scots Language Society
Scottish Poetry Library
Scottish Storytelling Forum
