Am I eligible for applying for EB-2A, NIW, or EB1 while a PhD student?
I am interested in learning how to apply for an EB-2A, NIW or EB1 green card by myself and whether I am eligible for applying.
For your information, below is my brief background.
I am a third-year PhD student, majoring in health policy at a U.S. university. I’ve earned an M.S. degree in health services research from School of Public Health at a U.S. university. My current job is a graduate research assistant at the university’s research center. The research center is fully funded through the federal government contract. The research all focus on workforce issues in health care, seeking ways to improve health care workforce in the U.S., so working in this center I am involving in a lot of research related to health care. I’m also involving in many works to produce policy research brief about health care workforce to the federal government. Currently, I have had 6 publications, including 2 first-authors and 4 co-authors, all were published during my master or phd period. One of my publication was published in a top-rank journal in our field and had 10 citations already. I presented many times at the national research conference of my field. I am also members of two professional associations in my field. I served as journal reviewers in two journals of my field. I have many ongoing projects and papers and plan to do a post-doc after graduation.
I wonder if I am eligible for applying for an EB-2A, NIW, or EB1 now? Or is it better for me to apply after graduation?
Usually how long these types of green card can be processed?
Thank you very much for answering my questions in advance.
