International Scholars & Students
Rutgers recognizes the value of global perspectives in academia. International scholars come to Rutgers for a variety of reasons and through various channels. They may be hired by the university to teach or conduct research; other times, they are invited to come to Rutgers to conduct research or pursue other academic endeavors alongside Rutgers faculty.
Academic and research units enter into a cooperative arrangement with Rutgers Global when hosting international faculty and scholars at Rutgers under the university's visa sponsorship, and, when applicable, in serving as the sponsor of a green card for eligible employees.
