Plans of Foreign Ph.D. Candidates. Postgraduate Plans of U.S. Trained Foreign Students in Science/Engineering. Fact Sheet to the Vice Chairman, Subcommittee on Economic Goals and Intergovernmental Policy, Joint Economic Committee, Congress of the United States.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC.
This fact sheet provides information on whether foreign students who earn doctoral degrees in the United States in scientific or engineering fields remain in the United States after receiving their doctorates. The information was obtained from a 1985 National Science Foundation report (NSF 86-305) titled "Foreign Citizens in U.S. Science and Engineering: History, Status, and Outlook". The NSF data indicate that, for all science and engineering fields: (1) many foreign students remain in the United States after receiving a PhD; (2) foreign students are remaining in the United States at increasing rates; and (3) foreign students are an increasing proportion of Ph.D. candidates.
