I am visiting scholar through J1 visa by Fulbright fund for 9 months and the grant will end in June 2020. I have an offer from professor in another university but the fulbright advisor told me that they commission in my country will not approve transfer of sponsorship so I have to return to my country. However the professor who give me the offer told me that he may find someone at the government agencies to "sign the Interested Government Agency request and submit it to the Waiver Review Division"? and have multiple US government-funded projects.
Is this sufficient to get waiver from 2 years

Sorry, but obtaining a Waiver of the 2 year HRR when one is/was on a Fulbright scholarship is very difficult.
