US Universities Offering Temporary On-Campus Visas To International Graduates

The United States’ universities have started programs to help foreign graduates with innovative ideas, which are exempted from the H1B visa categories.  Eligible candidates are provided temporary permits on-campus for developing businesses. The University of Massachusetts started such a program in 2014 that paved way for 20 graduates to obtain visas. The respective businesses created jobs for around 260 people in the United States. Similar programs are offered by the University of Alaska-Anchorage, University of Colorado-Boulder, Alaska Pacific University, Babson College and the City University of New York. The head of the Global Entrepreneur Residence Program in UMASS, William Brah, said that such programs serve international students who could not secure H1B visas. "Every year, we figure Massachusetts says goodbye to over 1,000 graduate students who otherwise want to stay and start a company," Brah said. "It's stupid. You couldn't come up with a more flawed immigration system if you tried." The H1B visa allows people with specialized knowledge to work in US industries through a lottery system.
