    I will apply for MPH for the next fall semester. However, it seems it is hard to get finacial aid from school as an international student. How about your suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    you should qualify for some private loans, but they require you to have a person in the United States as a reference. another option is that universities may offer you an assistantship or a instructor position, that could potentitally eliminate your tuition and also provide you with a stipend and health insurance. good luck.

    you have to go out looking for assitantships/research positions, it's not as if the school will necessarily look around for you. most of the leg work will be done by yourself. so good luck
