UPB - Foreign National Eligibility for Awards & Prizes

Foreign National Eligibility for Awards & Prizes

Always check eligibility before selecting a foreign national for an award or prize.

Foreign Nationals Payment Eligibility Grid

Always use the Foreign Nationals Payment Eligibility Grid to check the eligibility of each visa status.

  • Ask the person to provide you with his or her visa status and if he or she has an Employment Authorization Document (EAD), if required.
  • Follow the row for the visa status to the Royalty – Prize – Awards column.
  • Whenever possible, the grid should be consulted before the foreign national enters the U.S.
