"A program that allows foreign science,
technology, engineering and math, or STEM, grads to work in the U.S. for
29 months without a work visa was expanded with little attention last
month by President Barack Obama's administration. The Optional Practical Training
(OPT) program had allowed students to work in the U.S. without a work
visa for up to 12 months until 2008, when the George W. Bush
administration increased the time limit to 29 months. The Obama administration is maintaining the 29-month OPT term limit,
but has expanded the number of eligible fields of study by about 90,
bringing the total to 400." - Computerworld, June 4, 2012.
