I am Indian citizen, applying for Fall season graduate studies in the USA.
Are international students like me eligible to apply for Federal aid (FAFSA)?

No. You must be "a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen" (i.e., a permanent resident with a green card) to get federal student aid.
NO , Federal aid is only for U.S citizens.
Even when it comes to job international can apply for only college roll positions but not work study ..
Federal aid and work study run through are like funding offered by the federal government or the countries central government thus these funds would directly allocated or redeemed by the students who are citizens .So if you are under F-1 or J-1 visa if you would want to have scholarships in u.s either your college or your department should sponsor you or if you are under grant the organisation would sponsor you.
