As an international student you won't be eligible for much of the funding intended for US nationals. But don't let that put you down as an eligibility for a scholarship depends entirely on the type of scholarship; there is no general rule on whether you will be eligible for a financial award.

Each Institute have different requirements for awarding scholarships; some scholarships require students to have a certain test score; some ask that you are from a certain country; some ask for you to have a certain grade point average. Students need to remember that USA universities are very stringent when it comes to rewarding a scholarship.
