Appreciate your reply!!
The PhD degree as such cannot be claimed to be of national interest but the work done during the degree and the expertise gained could be argued to be. So it depends on what is the area of research and how it will be useful to the nation. You can see the commonly asked questions and  some example petitions to understand this.
Also you can see the uscis requirements to see what is expected in a typical petition. Also the following free ebook has more details on common questions.
Best of luck
