Prospective Scholars

Oregon State University (OSU) has long welcomed international faculty and scholars to teach, conduct research, and collaborate with colleagues on its campus. During an academic year, OSU hosts approximately 450 faculty and scholars from as many as 50 different countries.

The International Programs office works cooperatively with academic departments and the Office of Academic Affairs in hiring international faculty and scholars. The international faculty and scholar staff prepares visa documents and advises on US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Department of State (DOS) matters for nonimmigrant post-doctoral positions, research assistants, and other faculty and scholar appointments.

Scholars interested in coming to Oregon State University, must first secure a sponsoring department.  The sponsoring department will then contact ISFS to determine visa category and to receive application forms.
