<<the first and most important rule is that the payment has to go DIRECTLY to the service provider (doctor/hospital for med expenses, school/tuition for educational expenses)... >>
There is no requirement about what the education might contribute to your life. To be on the safe side, attend an accredited institution and you'll be fine. grandparents can pay for any kind of education- preschool, k-12, college, etc. Wish my kids' grandparents would. Maybe their childrens' gradnparents will ;)
