German Language Scholarship in the Federal Republic of Germany

Every year, the Goethe-Institut Australia offers one 4-week language course scholarship at a Goethe-Institut in Germany to Australians working in Key Positions in the Arts. We aim to enable curators, directors, arts managers and journalists to obtain a better understanding of both the German language and further insight into the German cultural scenes.

Applicants should work for cultural initiatives with a specific interest in Germany and with the intention of bringing back the experiences made in Germany into the Australian context.

The scholarships include:

  • tuition fee
  • accommodation, breakfast
  • health insurance
  • a travel allowance of €800 is also included and will be reimbursed in Germany upon arrival - Please note: Due to budget constraints, the travel allowance might not be granted in every case.
Application details:

Recipients of the scholarship must at least have German knowledge equivalent to level A1.
