The purpose of this form is to assist the graduate schools and ISSO in collecting information from all international students whose visa sponsorship is not coming from Brandeis, but rather from a government or sponsoring agency (For example Fulbright, Ford Foundation, OSI, local government, etc.)
After an offer of admission is made, the appropriate International Admissions Coordinator should complete the following steps:
(1) complete and submit this VIDOF
(2) request a scanned copy of the student's valid passport (including photo ID page and expiration date page)
(3) request a scaned copy of the student's admission letter and financial aid award (if any)
(4) submit sponsoring agency/organization contract or terms of agreement
Upon submitting the VIDOF (Visa Information/Declaration of Finances) and receiving all required documents listed above, sponsored students' files may be forwarded via email to Emily Stewart (firstname.lastname@example.org
) in the Brandeis International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO).
