Scholarship & Work Study Opportunities

The Germanic-American Institute offers one or two scholarships and one work study position each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) to cover the cost of attending a language class or Samstagsschule. More information about the two programs, as well as the current application, can be found below.

We are NO LONGER accepting Scholarship and Work Study Applications for the Fall session. 


One student each semester is awarded a scholarship to attend any of the offered GAI adult language courses. This award is based on financial need and the student's interest and goals in continuing to learn the German language. The student is required to purchase the textbook for the course.

Work Study

In exchange for free tuition for any GAI adult language class, the student will work an equivalent number of hours in the GAI library or at the Saturday morning Kaffeestube throughout the semester. Work study students are required to purchase the textbook for their selected course.

Library duties may include sorting and cataloging new materials, checking in items, assisting patrons, and shelving books.

Kaffeestube duties include cashiering for the breakfast buffet and answering guests' questions about the GAI.

Do you have other skills that could be beneficial to our non-profit organization? Contact us to discuss additional options.
