With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently updated its Policy Manual to offer further advice on the types of evidence that can be used to support a petition for an O-1A nonimmigrant of outstanding ability.
According to USCIS, having one's name on a highly competitive government grant for STEM research might help to show that the beneficiary is an expert in their profession. This evidence is added to the list of examples that may be used to demonstrate a candidate's exceptional talent in the STEM subjects. The USCIS Policy Manual has the whole list.
People with outstanding talent in the sciences, arts, business, education and athletics are eligible for O-1 nonimmigrant status, as are individuals with a track record of extraordinary success in the film or television industries.
