SPIE Backs SMART Jobs Bill

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A new bill that would enable foreign students educated in US graduate programs to stay in the country and work has gained the support of SPIE. The Sustaining our Most Advanced Researchers and Technology (SMART) Jobs Act of 2012 would create a visa category for students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. The category would allow students who declare their intent to obtain work in their fields to remain in the US for a certain amount of time to seek employment and apply for a green card.
