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, and have 2-3 years of funding 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 parker.emerson@yale.edu.

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.
