    Johnathan:

    There is ONE school in Japan that is a participant in the Federal Student Aid program – that’s Temple University in Tokyo, and yes, this is a Tokyo Campus of the Philadelphia-based US university.

    If that’s where you hope to attend school, you’ll be eligible for any forms of financial aid that you’d qualify for in the US. If that’s not where you hope to attend school in Japan, then you won’t qualify for any forms of federal student aid.

    I wish I didn’t have to disappoint you, but financial aid is not designed or intended to make it possible for college students to afford to achieve their dreams. It’s a very laudable goal to dream of pursuing an education in a foreign university, but it’s an incredibly expensive dream, just like a desire to drive a $ 354,000 Lamborghini Murcielago.

    Focus your efforts on scholarships – especially any scholarships that are intended to promote international exchange and goodwill. The Fulbright Scholarship is probably the best known program of this type in the world, but there are many others, like the Gilman International Scholarship, and the Rotary Foundation Scholarship program.

    Here’s some links:
