    I'm a Dual-National, My Dad is American and my mum is English, I have two passports and a certificate of birth abroad and everything. I've always lived and was born in England however, and am going to study in London, England in September.
    I've applied for my student finance, but living in London is going to be super expensive and i'm looking for any extra money i can get!

    Does anyone know anywhere that i can apply for any American grants or scholarships to help me next year?

    Look at the Fulbright Commission website and have a look at uni websites. They'd be able to give you more info as to what is available.

    Yes although I doubt you would get much unless you have lived within the US although I could be wrong....

    Edit: Did you mean to help you here? no you can't, at least not to my knowledge.

    Have you checked if you qualify for FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)? I have no idea what the requirements are, but you may want to look into it! Good luck
