Hi! The UC schools are definitely very expensive! I would recommend applying for ANY scholarships you are eligible for. Even small ones help if you get multiple of them. There are a ton of websites that help search for them, and there are a lot of random scholarships that not many people apply for. Good luck!

Since your name is Hope and I have a friend named hope who is a girl I will safely assume you identify as a woman which means Pageants are something that would be open o you. In the US we hold pageants and even though they are under the pre-conceived notion of beauty queens with nothing behind the makeup that's completely wrong it's a lot of smart leadership-driven women who are winning 30k + in scholarship money for each pagent. Pageants are a great way a lot of women make money for college very quickly and a great option for intelligent women to meet other like-minded women.

Though it does vary from person to person depending on their specific background. It really depends what schools you are applying to and what scholarships they offer to international students. You should also consider looking at private scholarships and loans. Hope that helps :)
