55,000 "Green Cards" to be Allocated for Top Foreign Graduates of U.S. Universities in STEM Fields

AIAA applauds today’s passage of the “STEM Jobs Act of 2012” in the U.S. House of Representatives. The measure passed by a 245–139 vote, with more than two dozen Democrats joining with Republicans in support of the bill.

The “STEM Jobs Act of 2012” would provide up to 55,000 permanent resident “green cards” each year to the top foreign graduates of U.S. universities with doctoral degrees in the “STEM” fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, with any remaining green cards being made available to such graduates with master’s degrees in STEM fields.
