Uni scholarship from home country

Hi all,

 

If the beneficiary came to the US on the K1 and continued her PhD program from a distance with her current non-US university, and still continued receiving her scholarships which are paid by the non-US university, is this allowed? I thought it would be allowed because the source of income isn't from the US + it's a living allowance scholarship for studying (not employment), but I want to double check.

 

Thanks

I think you already know the answer.  Working is not allowed without permission.   Is she working?


YMMV

Not an issue.

I thought I knew the answer, however I wanted a second opinion due to it still being an ‘income’. I’d rather be safe than sorry.

 

Thank you everyone for your responses.
