For a Masters program, your tuition fees for the colleges in the US can vary from $10,000 - $90,000 and more. However, there are many ways to obtain financial aid and if not, there are simpler ways to recover from the money you invest into your education. The first thing you should do when applying for scholarship is to reach out to the colleges and enquiring about their scholarships and grants. Schools like MIT (Scholarships worth $39,339), Johns Hopkins University (Scholarships worth $35,195), Northwestern University (Scholarships worth $34,882), and many others offer various scholarships for international students. There are many helpful blogs that tell you all about the financial aid for studying abroad. I got my info from this blog- 'How to fund your education abroad'. You can take a look if you wish. Hope the answer helped!

RE: What are the universities with the lowest tuition fees for Masters in Australia?
Your tuition fees depend upon a lot of factors such as the program and the courses that you opt for. For example, the fees for studying medicine in Australia and the fees for other masters courses differ greatly. Approximately, the tuition fees for most Masters courses are between 20,000 AUD to 37,000 AUD. While the tuition fees for high-value courses like Medicine can be between 33,000 AUD to 44,000 AUD. So based on what courses you want, the tuition fees can differ. But there are many universities that offer scholarships to international students. So you could search for that as well.
RE: Can someone pls tell me somethings about how to write the perfect essay for university?
Your statement of purpose(SOP) is a very important part of your university application. So here are a few things to keep in mind when rules that you should follow when you write your SOP:
- Don't boast of brag in your SOP.
- Try and make sure your content is to-the-point
- Make sure that if you're talking about accomplishments, you have some proof to back them up
- You must have a strong introduction so that it can captivate the reader and help you get selected
- Make sure to not write your SOPat the last minute because it can seem a little rushed
These are just a few points that I can think of. There are many other important writing points that you need to keep in mind when you write this. I read about all this in this blog about 'Mistakes to avoid while writing an SOP' (https://ischoolconnect.com/blog/5-mistakes-avoid-writing-powerful-statement-of-purpose/)

- University of Winnipeg
- University of Regina
- Brock University

While many students believe that university admissions are all about scores, your profile has a lot of factors. Your scores, Statement of Purpose, Letter of recommendation, extracurriculars, and other factors helps the admissions office decide if you’re the perfect candidate for their program. Some of the other factors that universities look for are:
-If the student can not only handle but also thrive under the higher education pressure and won’t drop out.
-If they intellectually contribute to the university and wouldn’t drag down or detract from academic progress. Students who would teach and learn from each other and strengthen their educational community.
-Can provide unique perspectives, skills, values, vision, talents, etc. and will use these abilities for the betterment of the college and student body.
-Will be engaged in social and cultural activities, debates, enriching discussions, and in building relationships.

Basically, universities around the globe look for student profiles that will make a positive mark on their institution and build upon their reputation and prestige.
