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.
