Chances of getting a scholarship (International Student)

ivydreamer2017ivydreamer2017 Registered User Posts: 4 New Member

I am an international student from Russia. Due to a devastating financial situation, I extremely need significant financial assistance (nearly full-ride scholarships).

My stats:

IB, predicted 40/45. W GPA will be about 4.2; UW - 3.8
New SAT: 1340 (CR640, M700, working hard on the Reading section, math is not problematic) - will retake in October, expect around 1450.
A wide range of extracurriculars, from establishing an online store to volunteering (300 hours) as a teacher at a local library.
Attended several summer programs in the USA and other countries, including YYGS at Yale.
Got a quite dramatic life story, so there is some material for the essays.

(I don't know what else I should include, so please ask if smth)

Can you please recommend some colleges which are generous with scholarships and fin.aid for internationals? Sounds unrealistic, I know, haha.

I am currently considering: Macalester, Vassar (not sure), Fordham, Skidmore, Lafayette, Colby, Soka Uni, Trinity, University of Richmond. Any chance among some of those?

Thanks in advance!
