Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Rep. Lori Trahan, D-Mass., have introduced a bill that would allow international college athletes to market their Name, Image and Likeness without losing their F-1 student visa status.
Additional Information: In 2021, the National Collegiate Athletics Association adopted an NIL policy that allows student athletes to engage in NIL activities — such as product endorsements, personal appearances, autographs or social media posts — consistent with the laws in their schools’ states. Murphy and Trahan have introduced NIL legislation before, but this is the first time it has included provisions for foreign student athletes. The push for rules that would allow foreign student athletes to take advantage of this NIL policy in the same manner as U.S. athletes has gained some traction, but so far Congress has not passed meaningful legislation on the issue.
