Goethe Institute scholarships for Cultural Workers



The amount of the scholarship is 2,000 €.  

Applications for the Emergency Grant Programme can be submitted here (form in English and Ukrainian).  

The selection will be made by a commission consisting of representatives of the Goethe-Institut Ukraine, the cultural department of the Goethe-Institut headquarters and the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

After 90 days from the beginning of the contract, the grantee must send a short, informal report (1,500 characters including spaces) to the Goethe-Institut (ukraine-hilfe@goethe.de).  

There is no legal entitlement to receive the scholarship.   

An additional scholarship programme as well as further support formats on the part of House of Europe, an EU programme under the leadership of the Goethe-Institut Ukraine, is being prepared.


Together with the German Federal Cultural Foundation, the Goethe-Institut supports artists and cultural actors from Ukraine in situ or in exile. For this purpose, both institutions have set up the Emergency Aid Scholarship Programme, for which artists and cultural workers from partner institutions of the Goethe-Institut Ukraine or the Federal Cultural Foundation can apply.  

The Emergency Fund for Ukrainian Cultural Professionals is a fund of the Goethe-Institut and the German Federal Cultural Foundation, supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, and made possible by the Federal Foreign Office.
