Yale University Sponsorship for O-1
You must be a full-time salaried Yale employee with an academic appointment of Associate Research Scientist or higher to qualify for Yale sponsorship. You should evaluate your eligibility for O-1 Extraordinary Ability based on the USCIS criteria before you request Yale sponsorship.
OISS suggests that you wait and build a good CV with quality publications in high impact journals before applying for sponsorship.
✓ Request University Sponsorship
You must complete a Sponsorship Form which collects key information about your visa status and academic accomplishments. Send the following three files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A completed Yale University Sponsorship Form [PDF]
- Research Statement in the format as specified on the website
✓ Review of the application materials
Your application package will be reviewed; your current visa status, expiry date and most importantly your academic credentials will be carefully studied. A meeting will be set up to inform you whether your case for O-1 Sponsorship can be sponsored by Yale.
