U.S. immigration regulations require that Yale verify and document adequate funding arrangements for all incoming scholars. Yale has set a minimum of $2,500 per month for an individual and an additional $725 per month for an accompanying spouse and $525 per 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 their list of compensation by appointment title.
