    I think he means just in general.

    Scholarships do not depends on your age per se. They, for the most part, depends on what you come into college as ie freshman, sophomore junior or senior. They also depends on how well your gpa was during course work and previous school work such as high school or cc.

    However, since you are consider a non-traditional student, there are a lot of special scholarships offered. The requirements are different but i know of a few that just require you to be non-traditional.

    There is an extremely limited number of undergraduate financial assistance to international student. You do not qualify for the usual financial aid package or loans made to most US citizens and permanent residents. The schools also tend to not give their financial aids to international students. The few awards available to international students at some schools are mainly private grants given for specific groups.

    The overwhelming majority of undergraduate international students either pay for their own education, or receive scholarships from their home government, home institutions, or some private entities in their home country. Unless you can secure one of these aids, your chances of getting one here in the US is extremely small to non-existent.
