Oregon State University (OSU) welcomes approximately 500 international faculty and scholars to teach, conduct research, and collaborate with colleagues at locations throughout Oregon.

International Scholar and Faculty Services (ISFS) works cooperatively with OSU departments in hiring and supporting international scholars and faculty. ISFS staff prepares visa documents and advises on immigration matters.

Scholars must first find a supervising professor and host department, referred to as an OSU sponsor, in order to conduct collaborative research at OSU or to be employed. Once a scholar finds a sponsoring professor, the department will then contact ISFS to determine the visa category and to receive application forms.
