Kachisbarbie:Op don't try this one oh. it worked for her cousin, in your own case, you might jam Amadioha grand daughter.
Bk to topic, pls take the risk. try to manage whatever you have till the stipends starts coming. if its possible sef carry foodstuffs from here.
And as someone suggested up there, tag yourself to some local churches. you will certainly get free meal.
See yourself as a survivor. illegal immigrants face worst situation yet they survive.
May Heaven guide you.

Please everyone ignore this poster. Don't be misled. Financial aid is for residents and citizens alike. You can't get it as an F-1 visa holder.

Na mansion you wan rent in your first month.... Bro you don't need that much, in my first month I spent less than 500.... Plus most schools allow you pay instalmentally for fees including insurance.... You have 3 months to hustle your ticket and $1,000.00.
Bro you can make it if you're serious

Financial aid are given to students whose parents are average or below average financial status.
If his parents makes below $90,000 every year, then he's qualified for a free hostel and financial aid.
That's not the only money will receive, he can apply for GRANT and they will add extra $3000 to the $1,500 financial aid making all the money total to $4,000

Welcome to Nigeria my friend, in 2016 where the world is exposed to all ways of reasoning some people would just stay put and do god this god that and that's why Nigeria is where it is, too much fools with low iq who can't reason out ways to change anything all they know is believe, pray, believe, curse and insult whoever is in power then pray such level of dumbness amuses and irritates me, no wonder the guys over there are busy stealing billions on a daily basis they all know the average Nigerian is as dumb as dumb can be, the smartest thing he can say is, god will punish them, lol like seriously, the change we really need isn't even Buhari or the government, it's us, we the young ones, thinksing outside the box, males and females alike not all this prayer, swears and insult talk, someone needs reasonable advice about taking a life changing step to go abroad to grener pastures and some people still reason this way, SMH

You're in a very good condition. I really don't see why you're confused. Trust me, you don't even need any loan from any bank.
If I am in your shoes, I'll go to LinkedIn and look for Nigerians in that same school or even in the department you were admitted to. How'd you do that? Type the name of the school with Nigeria in front of it in the search query box. For example, "University of Texas at Austin Nigeria." That will come up with a result of those that have had contact with the school and Nigeria, of course including those who aren't Nigerians. From this result, you can use their profiles to filter Nigerians who are currently studying in the School. To extend the search to the department, you just have to add the name of the department to the previous search text.
Now, you can add them up and explain your situation to them. I'm sure you'd surely get someone that can even allow you stay with him/her pending when you get your own place. And since they're sure you'll be receiving stipend, they should be able to borrow you money.
We might have our troubles here due to religious and ethnic differences, but in an Oyinbo land, a Nigerian will most likely than not help a fellow Nigerian regardless of his or her tribe or religion.

Get out before the window closes...You're a survivor, put yourself to test..Jah is your strength

Wow you are very smart! Now I see why they waived your tuition. Remember at the visa interview you would still have to prove to them that going to the US , you will not become a liability. Its very important that you not only enter the US well but that you make arrangements to avoid being stranded. If you have a relation or friend in the US or someone that knows someone u can stay with for a few days, I would advice that you take that alternative while you prepare to resume for school. Hotel fees may be too much for you to handle and I wouldn't recommend that. Or better still go to the US a few days or a week before you are to resume, contact and ask your international student coordinator for a waiver to get access to your accommodation earlier, explaining your situation to the school may be of benefit to you. Good luck!

People get funding from the schools in the form of Research or Teaching Assistantship. You can check that up on Google for more information.

CProf:I can believe this. You have a full tuition waiver and monthly stipend, yet you can't hustle your way out?
you want to be spoonfed abe?
When i left the shores of Nigeria for studies too, i had just 200usd on me. That was about 45kngn.
My flight ticket was 278kngn, all cash hustled and arranged by me 100%. I was also around your age. Totally self(family) sponsored, no scholarship from anywhere and no guarantee of monthly upkeep stipend.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be born into wealth, but serious people work their way to the top.
You have 100k which is well above 300usd, full scholarship, guaranteed monthly stipend and you are asking if you should forfeit the opportunity ?
You can forfeit the scholarship so that a more deserving, self-motivated person can get it. Perhaps you are here to garner sympathy for someone to dash you money instead of hustling. If that's the case, na u sabi
