speakeasy Scholarship

Finding your way in a new culture, adapting to a foreign environment, and learning a new language at the same time – building a life in another country is not always easy. That's why speakeasy has been offering a wide range of communication-orientated language courses for many years to support you on your adventure abroad.

But that's not all - because we are also offering you the opportunity to apply for our sought-after speakeasy scholarships!

speakeasy Stipendium


In addition to their studies, German courses and other duties, many students at our language school must work to pay for their living expenses. Our speakeasy scholarships are designed to help you gain a foothold in Germany and make your plans a little easier.
With our speakeasy scholarships, we support a total of 10 committed language learners:

  • 1st place: scholarship of 1,500 EUR
  • 2nd place: scholarship of EUR 1,000
  • 3rd place: scholarship of 500 EUR

How can I apply and what are the requirements?

With our scholarships, we would like to support the participants of speakeasy during their stay. Therefore, our scholarship offer applies to all existing course participants who have taken minimum two months of language courses with us. If you meet the formal requirements, you can take your chance and apply for our scholarship every year between 1st of April and 1st of October. To do so, just send us a 90-second video in which you introduce yourself and your personal motivations (in English).
