Funding Support

U.S. immigration regulations require that Yale verify and document adequate funding arrangements for all incoming scholars. Yale has set a minimum of $2400/month for an individual and an additional $625/month for an accompanying spouse and $417/month for each accompanying child. In all instances, the minimum level of funding must be met before a visa document can be issued. In addition, J-1 scholars and any accompanying dependents must have health insurance coverage. Finally, H-1B visa holders must follow U.S. Department of Labor rules about funding regardless of Yale's recommendations.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs sets the funding levels for all appointments that fall under the authority of their office.  Please refer to these compensation policies.
