How can you find out if your German course can be funded by the AMS?

Follow these five steps:
Step 1: Make an appointment with the DIVAN.
Step 2: Make an appointment with the AMS.
Step 3: Determine the specific objectives of your German course or individual lessons during your appointment at the DIVAN; you will take a placement test if necessary.
Step 4: Submit your application form, with all relevant information regarding your German course, to the AMS.
Step 5: Find out from your advisor at the AMS appointment if your German course at the DIVAN will be funded.
The same principle also applies to other funding agencies such as, e.g., WAFF (Wiener ArbeitnehmerInnen Förderungsfonds, Vienna Employment Promotion Fund).
