I want to pay for my wife's neice college

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife's neice was the valedictorian of her grade school and I'm considering paying for her education in the Philippines. Once she graduates high school I'm considering paying for her college tuition on the U.S. Would that be possible? My goal is for her to become a US citizen. Any suggestions?

Its a long path and not a quick one, but if you have the money and she has the skills it is possible.

Hi,

You can pay for her education.

If she gets into a U.S. college and can get an F-1 visa, you can pay for it. You being able to pay does not guarantee she will get a visa.

There is nothing you can do to get her U.S. citizenship. There is no path for that through you.

Best of luck

i dunno - there's an international university in Korea that has lots of companies chasing its graduates. A path to USA Citizenship is limited - what is your plan for her to acquire citizenship ?

I mean no offence, but it's a long way from grade school valedictorian to high school graduation with potential to attend college in the USA. I would give It a couple of years before worrying about it.

As previous said she has no path to citizenship through you.

Gets a good degree from a US Uni.

Gets a good job with a US Company who end up sponsoring her for a GC.

After 5 years with a GC applies for Citizenship.

My niece was the top student in her school and scored in the top one percent of her class on the national test. I'm hoping she could get a job with a U.S company. She certainly has the intelligence. I will definitely get her tutoring in English and try to get her into a good school. She's in a high school right now that won't let her communicate with family members or friends. Once a month one of the nuns tells her mother that she is doing "ok". I know it's a different culture but I think this is child abuse. I wouldn't have waited till she graduated from high school but I can't let this go on. It's just wrong.

I don't know what my path is yet. I don't necessarily want her to gain U.S citizenship I'd just like it if she could get out of the Philippines since the economy is so dismal. I'm just trying to gain as much knowledge as possible so I can be of the most help to her. Can you tell me what international university chases its graduates? This sounds like a promising lead.

one thing i want you to check -

pick 5 universities in the usa - any 5.

call them, ask for international student tuition rates.

then compute what a 4 year degree would cost you.

Report back, when able !

Searching US universities depends on degree of study

you have to know what this girl wants to study

her interests here need special attention as it seems others are controling her life now

don't change them controlling her to you controlling her life

give her the chance to decide

and all major colleges and universities have a foreign population / many with organizations to support foreign kids away from their family and culture

I am Cornell grad and the population of foreign students is high

I dont want to sound rude or anything,but does this kind of question belong here?!?!We are talking of someone who has not even finished high school!

At least let her finish school, her future plans may not even be coming to America!

While you preface your comment as not wanting to sound rude, your comment is extremely rude. The OP did not come to ask our opinions about his niece's education. He came to see if it was feasible . . . if there was a legal route.

Your comment passes judgment. You are being rude.

Economy not that dismal. Lots of money to be made in PHilippines

Put her in college and pursue a Lawyer or Doctor degree in the Philippines........

Or, if she continues with english study and she's good at math/science, plenty of Information Technology positions in Philippines too. Coming to America is not the be all, end all of a good life.

Unless you have bucket loads of money to spend.
