Hi there! Finding financial support as an international student can be difficult.

In particular, getting a full ride as an international student is very competitive. Here is a website with some that you can peruse to see if any fit what you're looking for: https://uscollegeinternational.com/2017/06/13/full-tuition-scholarship-international-students/

CollegeVine's blog also has a few articles on this topic - here's an example post: https://blog.collegevine.com/u-s-college-scholarships-for-international-students/

In terms of financial assistance from colleges, some have policies for international students that are both need-blind (your finances won't affect your admissions) and offer significant financial assistance in the form of aid. Examples include Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and MIT. Here is an example of their commitment to international students on their website: https://sfs.mit.edu/undergraduate-students/apply-for-aid/international/

I would look through your prospective schools' websites for similar language and tabs that explain their assistance program; these also might have links to additional scholarship opportunities!
