Non-U.S. Citizens without U.S. Permanent Resident Status

Because of the program’s domestic focus, a very limited number of non-U.S. citizens are selected each year. In addition to the eligibility criteria for the above professions, applicants must also:

  • Be eligible for a J-1 Visa external icon Exchange Visitor category at the time of application
    • Applicants who already hold a J-1 or any other type of U.S. visa or work authorization must contact the EIS program prior to submitting an EIS application.
    • If selected for EIS, the applicant must remain eligible for a J-1 visa. CDC will sponsor the J-1 Visa. Applying for any other type of visa or Green Card (Permanent Resident Card) may affect one’s eligibility for the J-1 visa, and result in the inability to join EIS.
  • Provide evidence of English-language proficiency by submitting TOEFL scores, unless exempt as outlined in the EIS TOEFL Requirements pdf icon[PDF – 2 pages]
  • Not be a citizen of a country determined by the U.S. Department of State to have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism (http://www.state.gov/j/ct/list/c14151.htmexternal icon)
