A Record Number of Foreign Student Graduates Remain in the U.S.

According to this recent Pew Research report – Number of Foreign College Students Staying and Working After Graduation Surges – there has been a 400% increase in foreign students remaining here, especially in the STEM fields. This is in line with a 2018 NSF report showing that temporary visa holder enrollments (foreign students) have steadily increased over the past years; these findings are further supported by this National Foundation for American Policy 2017 report – The Importance of International Students to American Science and Engineering.

The Open Doors program from the IIE provides a plethora of related data.
