Scholarship in Germany with HIV?

(1/4) > >>

EstAle:
I was awared with a scholarship to study a master in Germany. When I was doing the mandatory tests for the health certificate (a must to make the scholarship award official) I found I was HIV positive... Now I wonder if the scholarship will become null if I send the results. I'm from Central America and asyntomatic

mecch:
Who asks for the health certificate?  The source of the grant?  German immigration? The German university?

EstAle:
The source of the grant asks for it, in this case, DAAD

Glossar
Gesundheitszeugnis

Before issuing a residence permit, the foreigners' authorities in some federal states demand that persons entering Germany from certain countries provide a health certificate indicating HIV infection or cases of tuberculosis.

It does not say which German states require this.  It does not say if HIV+ status is disqualifying..  It might be they need to know, but might still give the residence permit. 

IF you want to be honest, and submit a factual health certificate, and if you are afraid it will disqualify you, perhaps you could contact DAAD anonymously to ask the question about whether or not HIV+ status is disqualifying???

If you don't want to risk that, or don't know how to contact, I guess I could give it a try for you....  I'm a professor in Europe so I could just ask them for the info, say I'm inquiring on behalf of a student, and see if I get an answer.  Let me know...

EstAle:
Oh! Would you ask them for me? Please and thank you very much! I'm almost hopeless and don't know what to do. The scholarship is to study in Stuttgart for a period of 24 months starting in this september. Thank you vey much again!
