10.6. Visiting Postdoctoral Scholars from Other Countries

International Visiting Postdoctoral Scholars must have an appropriate form of visa sponsorship prior to their visit.  In the majority of cases, this will be J visa sponsorship from Stanford.  In some cases, the visiting postdoctoral scholar may have arranged for J sponsorship through an administering agency (e.g., Fulbright).  As a condition of the visa the Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar may be required to demonstrate proof of sufficient financial support and adequate health insurance coverage while in the U.S.  Contact the Bechtel International Center for further information at internationalscholars@stanford.edu.
