In Germany, if a person (a German national or not) receives a public scholarship (i.e funded by the government), they cannot earn more than 400Euros addition to the money they are getting from the scholarship.
Now, I have made some savings prior to getting a public scholarship from the German government, and I would like to invest that money into the stock market.
Does this mean that if I, for example, buy distributing ETFs, the dividends should be less than 4800Euros in a given year? What about the unrealized capital gains. For example, with some miracle if I double my savings in a single year, will I lose my scholarship?
It is a DAAD scholarship.
