US Congress Bill seeks direct ‘Green card’ to PhD holders

WASHINGTON: In an effort to retain the best foreign talent in the country, a bill has been introduced in the US Congress, which if passed, would give direct “permanent residency” to overseas PhD students, including from India. As such these foreign students would be exempted from applying for H-1B visas or other work visas to stay and work in the United States. However, not all PhD would be eligible for the popular “Green Card”. As per the bill introduced by Jeff Flake, Republican Congressman from Arizona, only those foreign nationals having completed PhDs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) would be eligible to directly apply.
