Title: “An easy way to become a US permanent resident through the National Interest Waiver”
Speaker: Jan Kubanek
Description: Most jobs and grant applications in the US require the applicant to be a US citizen or permanent resident. This greatly limits international postdocs or students in their endeavors. I, a citizen of the Czech Republic, will show you how to successfully apply for the US permanent residency through the National Interest Waiver program. Most people would tell you that you need an immigration lawyer for this kind of thing. The exact opposite is true—without a lawyer, the process is much easier, faster, and you don’t have to pay anyone. I will share with you how to go about that. I will also provide you with the example of my approved application. This shall greatly expand your future options in academia or the industry.
Location: Munzer Auditorium, Room B060, Beckman Center
Time: 5:15 - 6:15pm, Thursday Sept 3rd.
Disclaimer: Jan will be discussing his own experiences of applying for a green card without a lawyer. Any recommendations provided within the discussion group do not constitute official advice from Stanford or SURPAS.
