The Goethe-Institut Washington serves teachers of German in the states of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, DC. We work in close cooperation with partners from educational organizations, universities, colleges, and the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). In cooperation with our regional headquarters in New York City, we also award stipends for continuing education in Germany.

In addition, we support German programs in the USA through specialized promotional materials and cultural events.
