You can work while studying in an American university that would admit you.

Unfortunately, it's not that simple.

For one thing, tuition is high. If you're not an American citizen, it's even higher, because you're charged at the exorbitant non-citizen rate.

Your first step should be to search online, or visit your local library for addresses of the Registrars of American universities. Write to as many of them as you can. You can also make phone calls during office hours, or send emails.

You basically want to know what the tuition is for foreign students, as well as work opportunities available.

In general, the law allows a foreign student to work a maximum of 20 hours a week. Depending on the type of job you get, the pay will be anything from $6 - $12 /hour. I.e. a max of $960/month before income taxes.

You can work more than 20 hours per week if your school schedule would allow it, since the 20 hour rule is not enforced. However, to work more than 20 hours per week, you almost would end up getting no sleep between classes and work.

A sample tuition for a university is: http://www.unlv.edu/Controller/bursar/spring_fees.html
Pay attention to the non-resident part.

In addition to tuition and fees, you also need food, books and supplies, a place to stay, transportation, clothes, etc.

A group of students often rent an apartment and share the rent. Depending on the city, rent would usually start from $150 per student per month. For a general idea, look for Rooms/shared under Housing on http://www.craigslist.org/
Go through many different cities on the website.

One last thing to keep in mind is that the US embassy may require you to have a proof that you're able to fund your education entirely without working. That is their way of keeping people out.

You may want to explore options in other countries such as the UK, the Scandinavian countries, Canada, etc. But I believe the story is pretty much the same as in the USA.

Good luck.

That is a big question every student at home and abroad is asking.

There is no easy answer. You will have to do your own reasearch online, by typing pertinent keywords in a search engine.

Another approach would be to write directly to each school you're interested in for information.

If you're lucky, your state in Nigeria may be sponsoring its citizens to study abroad. So look there also.

Furthermore, find out about the Bureau for External Aid. They provide scholarships to very good students on a highly competitive basis.

The road to scholarship land is rough. But with some good fortune, you may be lucky enough to get one. In any event, you generally have to be a first-rate top-knoch student to be awarded a scholarship.
