I don't see why not.  The law (Sections 6428A and 6428B) excluded nonresident aliens from eligibility.  It didn't require being a resident alien all year.

Thank you Bob for the section code:

Eligible individual For purposes of this section, the term “eligible individual” means any individual other than—

(1)
any nonresident alien individual,
(2)
any individual with respect to whom a deduction under section 151 is allowable to another taxpayer for a taxable year beginning in the calendar year in which the individual’s taxable year begins, and
(3)
an estate or trust.
