Case Summary:

In this NIW (National Interest Waiver) case, our client is a student currently pursuing her Doctor of Philosophy in the College of Education. Her research focuses on improving STEM education with the aid of computer technology. With our hard work and dedicated team, we convinced the USCIS that our client deserved the national interest waiver by presenting a customized petition letter to highlight her skills and strengths.

As an expert in the field of education our client’s research is of great importance because it has presented new strategies for the effective education of students from many age groups on many subjects. Education is an area of research which is foundationally important because all other fields of study rely on education to propagate and develop knowledge. Education is also connected inextricably to the health of the population. Her proposed research therefore has substantial merit because our client is working to develop more effective and accessible educational methods, her research is directly contributing to global education and thereby to global health.

Apart from the research in the field, our client has also published 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 1 peer-reviewed conference publication, and 1 book that collected 37 citations and also conducted 2 reviews by the time we were ready to file her case.

We also helped our client select a handful of suitable recommenders to further support the petition. One of the 6 recommendation letters describe our client and her research with the following excerpt: “[Client’s] studies methods of improving student’s cognitive abilities, especially as this relates to teaching English as a learning language (ELL) Equipping students with non-native languages allows them to participate in many societies and adapt to our quickly globalizing world, thereby preparing them for success upon their exit from the educational system.”

We thank our client for giving us the honor to be part of her success and wish her all the best as she carries out impressive research in the United States.
