Immigration Info Session

May 17, 2017
5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Columbia University Medical Center, Hammer Health Sciences Building Room 401, 701 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032

The goal of this event is to provide resources on how to transition from a J1/F1/OPT to a Green Card/H1B​. All postdocs and PhD students from all NY institutions are welcome to attend. The event will consist of a short info talk by a representative from Fragomen. explaining regulation and recent changes in the legislation, a panel with different postdocs that have gone through the different modalities of Green Card/H1B, and a networking reception. We think it will be a good opportunity for international NYC researchers to learn about different ways to H1B and permanent residency and also a great chance to socialize!
