Stay Rates of Foreign Doctorate Recipients from U.S. Universities ORISE monitors how well the United States attracts and retains foreign scientists and engineers
The ORISE Stay Rates of Foreign Doctorate Recipients from U.S. Universities study (.PDF, 178 KB) estimates the stay rate of foreign nationals who receive doctorates in science and engineering from U.S. universities. Stay rates presented in this study are as of 2013. Data from 2017 have been recently released in the Science and Engineering Indicators 2020: Science and Engineering Labor Force, published by the National Science Board. Additional data from 2015 are available in the 2018 Science and Engineering Indicators, also published by the National Science Board. See Chapter 3: Science and Engineering Labor Force—Immigration and the S&E Workforce—New Foreign-Born Workers—Long-term Stay Rates for U.S. S&E Doctorate Recipients.
