Self-Sponsorship Options for Permanent Residence for Postdocs and Researchers 

This session is for international scholars who are interested in pursuing permanent residence under their own sponsorship.  This session will specifically focus on Postdocs and Academic Researchers, dealing with self-sponsored EB1 options under the “Extraordinary Abilities” classification and the EB2 National Interest Waiver option.

The goals of this program are:  1) to provide 10 specific and tested practice keys that will enable Postdocs and Researchers to successfully achieve permanent residence; 2) to develop analytical standards to determine whether and when to start a case for permanent residence; and 3) to provide meaningful insights into approaches that can be utilized by Postdocs and Researchers in order to achieve permanent residence. This will be a highly informative and at times entertaining presentation with opportunities to ask general questions on the permanent resident process. 

Presenter: Robert Aronson.
