Short Answer: stem based scholarships/competitions

Long answer:

Unfortunately, MIT and other top schools don't give any scholarships, so most likely you will have to rely on private scholarships and awardsBut don't worry, there is still hope!!.Since you want to go to MIT, I am assuming that you are interested in the STEM fields. If this is the case, then your best option will be to specifically look for science competitions that give big money prizes.

The best one out there is the Regeneron STS. The first place prize is 250,000$. Even getting into the top 40, gets you 25,000$ and virtually guarantees your admission into MIT and other top schools. However, it is very competitive with over 2000 applications.

Other options are competitions like Stockholm Junior Water prize, Biogenius International Challege, Intel ISEF etc...

Collegevine has a article on some of these competitions which you can check out here: https://blog.collegevine.com/prestigious-stem-competitions-for-high-school-students/
