Most colleges and universities in the United States do offer scholarships and financial aid to international students, though the availability and amount of aid can vary.

Need-Based Financial Aid: Many institutions offer need-based financial aid to international students, but the criteria and availability can differ. Also some colleges are more generous than others.

Merit-Based Scholarships: Many U.S. colleges provide merit-based scholarships for international students. These are typically awarded based on academic performance, extracurricular achievements, leadership, and other talents.

Institution-Specific Aid: Some universities have specific scholarships dedicated to international students also. These can be need-based, merit-based, or a combination of both.

Government and Private Scholarships: There are also government-sponsored programs and private organizations that offer scholarships to international students studying in the U.S.

Given you’ve said you have a strong academic record and extensive extracurricular activities, you are likely a competitive candidate for many of these opportunities. But I’d advise to research individual institutions to understand the specific scholarships and financial aid options they offer to international students.
