I want to ask, specially international students already enrolled in college, the following things:
-Are there any scholarships in the US oriented to international students?
The problem is that I want to go and study in US. However, the costs of attendance are way to high for my economic level.
I want to go to SCU, and the cost for international students per year is nearly $60k.
I can't pay that.
I already searched in the Internet (specially FastWeb [which is only for US citizens] and IEFA) and I didn't found anything.
Mostly there are individual scholarships (scholarships certain colleges offer for applying to their college) and I couldn't find any "general" scholarship or financial aid.
I could also apply for a loan, but I don't have a US co-signer, and without that it's impossible to ask for a loan.
In my country, there are specific government loads, but they reach up to only $40k per year, and loans above that are really hard to get if yout economic level isn't "at the top".
Does anyone knows about something regarding this subject?
I would really, really appreciate any help.
If I can't get any sort of help or loan, all I've been doing (SAT, TOEFL, other things) will be useless.
*You might probably say to seek other colleges, but it's late for me. I'll be doing the SAT this saturday and most admissions's deadline ends before December, and I won't have my results by that time.
I was naive and idiot since I just focused in SCU and didn't really looked for other colleges...
*I'm an International Student from El Salvador. I'm 18 years old. I want to get a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and I'm seeking to apply for Fall 2013 term.
Thanks to anyone who's willing to help.
I really need any advice on this! Please
