meridus asks:

Can anyone suggest me a college/university that provides a substantial amount of financial aid to international applicants ?

I am an undergraduate applicant.
Probable major -Biochemistry or chemical engineering.
SAT I score 1140(verbal+math)and SAT II score 1240 (chemistry+math level I )
I completed my 12th grade under the Edexcel Board in science subjects and have applied to some Ivy Leagues but unfortunately got rejected.I am therefore looking for some mid-tier universities for the class of 2014.

Applying to universities for an undergraduate education can be very exciting. Applying to Ivy League schools can be very competitive, and there are many other great school options. It is good that you are looking into all of your options so you can find a school that is the best fit for you.

I suggest you look at the “College” section of  You can search for colleges in the U.S. based on major and degree.  Admissions criteria, tuition, financial aid, and information about the college is given for each school.  This is an extremely helpful resource, and I suggest you take advantage of it. You can search for universities that specifically have your intended major, biochemistry or chemical engineering:

Many public universities are currently strapped for money. Private schools may be more likely to give greater financial assistance. Carnegie Mellon (Pittsburgh, PA), Tulane (New Orleans, Louisiana), Tufts (Boston, MA), Emory (Atlanta, GA), and Rice (Texas) may be some places you want to look into.

Here are other resources you may find useful:

Financial Assistance for U.S. Study

Best wishes to you in your college application process.
