STEM Jobs Act (HR 6429)

The STEM Jobs Act eliminates the diversity lottery green card program and reallocates up to 55,000 green cards a year to new green card programs for foreign graduates of U.S. universities with advanced STEM degrees. These green cards are first made available to foreign graduates with doctorates and any remaining green cards are then made available for foreign graduates with master’s degrees.

The bill creates a new green card category for aliens who have received STEM doctorates from U.S. universities. The bill also creates a new green card category for aliens who have received STEM master’s degrees from U.S. universities. If any green cards are not used by aliens with doctorates, they will then be made available to foreign graduates with master’s degrees.
