Anyone who is not a "US Person" (see US Person definition on this page).  Examples of foreign persons are students, post-doctoral scholars, or research staff in F-1 or J-1 status, and Stanford foreign national employees in H1-B status.  A foreign person also means any foreign corporation, business association, partnership, or any other entity or group that is not incorporated to do business in the US. Foreign persons may include international organizations, foreign governments and any agency or subdivision of foreign governments, such as consulates.
