As we said earlier the amount of scholarship varies between institutes, but the table gives a fair idea of the average amount of scholarship offered by public and private universities in the US.
Apart from this, you can also try for scholarships that are not linked to any institution and some of them do not just look at your SAT score for awarding the scholarship. But your focus should be on getting a good SAT score so that you can then concentrate on getting a scholarship.
