I have admit from UT Dallas for MS in Management Science.
I20 Amount- ~42k USD. I have Instate tuition waiver and $1k Scholarship. So the Revised I20 would be~ 29.5k USD. The Course Duration is 2 years.
My Financials are as follows:
1. Education loan : 41.5k USD i.e ~ INR 27 L (this is the maximum I can get).
2. My Savings: INR 11 L
3. My PF : INR 2 L
Total: INR 40L.

Here is my query:
1. I have sufficient funds (i20*2) if I consider the revised i20 amount Very Happy. However, I do not have Scholarship for 2nd year and I have to apply for it in 2nd Semester. Confused

2. Should I show sponsors?

3. My dad is retired and do not have hefty saving (less than 10L ) and He does not get any pension. I have a brother but his annual salary is >2L. So, I think showing any of them as sponsor will not be a good idea.

4. Can I show cousin as sponsor? But his Salary is only 8-9L per month.

5. A Family friend is willing to sponsor but I am little sceptical about having a non-family member as sponsor. I think this will give VO a reason to reject my application. Brick wall

And What are the documents needed from Sponsor for Visa Interview.

What's the amount on I-20? Visa officer usually go with amount on I-20. If you could get new I-20 with renewed amount then you should be good with current funds and sponsor.

Only 8-9L per month? Surprised

If you can get I-20 with renewed I-20 only then it would be fine.
You can add cousin as a sponsor but prepare answer for why he is willing to fund you and questions alike.
