International student looking for financial aid

Hi I'm a student (senior) currently living in Japan. (I have US citizenship)

Uni in the states is approximately quadruple the price of uni in Japan = I MOST DEFFINITELY need financial aid.

Are there any reccomended programs fro me to apply for ( scholarships etc.) which are not a loan that I could possibly look fot???

Thank you :))

Apply for FAFSA since you have US citizenship, it is financial aid from the government but seeing that you're an international student the FAFSA application process might be a bit tougher than someone living in the states. However, your university may not accept it since it is nearing the end of school years here. Other then that, check your university if they offer their own scholarships. Good luck! :)
