Unfortunately, financial aid is only available to US citizens/residents. I would look to see if your government has any available study abroad support programs.

You can look into merit scholarships in US universities instead or look for financial aid from your home country and become a J-1 visa holder (sponsored student visa) here

Regardless on what school you attend they should have different resources in helping you receive funding, if you have your mind set on a dream school see what you can get by emailing counselors. Also looking online there are several scholarship that go unclaimed for little things like being international or writing with a left hand.
