As Becky said, the fees for overseas students are huge, but it is possible to get loads of bursaries and stuff, depending on what Uni you go to, and what grades you can get. If you do some research, then you find quite a few people willing to give you money if you apply for it/write an article/get good grades or whatever. I'd look into that if'n I were you.
Well, as for grades, I'm getting the IB (international baccaluareate (sp?)) dipoma, which is supposed to be respected "worldwide," and as for scholarships/grants/free money... I'm not sure if I could find anyone willing to do that...
What subject are you doing at Uni? Contact a professional association for that subject, if there is one, contact associations that promote overseas learning, contact groups in your own area - I don't know the American equivalents but here I'd look at the Round Table, XRT, the Rotary Club, the Lions Club etc. Contact the universities themselves, many of them have scholarships for overseas students as long as you perform well.
Other possibilities are sports and hobbies, if you're very good at anything like that then you can often find people to give you money to get through Uni, and if all else fails then there's always the Army.
(I've thought about how to get money to go to Uni a lot, can you tell?
