Proof of impairments

Students whose studies are affected by a physical or psychological disability will be considered accordingly when applying for the Deutschlandstipendium. It does not matter whether the disability is visible or invisible, whether it is a physical or mental illness, or whether there is official recognition (disability certificate) or not. In order for this impairment to be taken into account in the evaluation, it must be separately documented by two documents

1. the student describes in an informal letter how the specific impairment hinders his or her studies. This requires information about the symptoms, but not the naming of a diagnosis. The letter should explain in a way that is comprehensible to a medical layperson which impairments exist in relation to studies.

2. a medical certificate proves the impairments mentioned by the student:

  • If possible, the certificate should be issued by the attending physician or therapist (with license to practice). This can be a specialist, but also a family doctor.
  • The medical report should be comprehensible to medical laypersons as to which study-related impairments are present. It is not necessary to state the exact diagnosis or medical history. However, the symptoms that lead to an impairment in the study situation should be described as precisely as possible.
  • Diagnostic tests, such as for a dyslexia, should not be older than 5 years. The PBS (Psychological Counseling Center) of the Studierendenwerk Bremen conducts tests for dyslexia and dyscalculia. These are free of charge for enrolled students of the universities in Bremen.

If you are in possession of a severely disabled ID, you are welcome to attach it to your documents. Simply uploading a copy of the severely disabled ID does not replace the required documents.
