- As many already know, studying for the physics GRE and getting accepted into a graduate program is not the final hurdle in your physics career.
- There are many issues current physics graduate students face such as studying for their qualifier, deciding upon a field of research, choosing an advisor, being an effective teaching assistant, trying to have a social life, navigating department politics, dealing with stress, utilizing financial aid, etc.

It depends on what your research is. I am Canadian so I am also not eligible for NSF etc. The majority of international students I know apply to their home country for fellowships (I have a Canadian equivalent to the NSF). Another option in my field is the NASA Earth & Space Sciences Fellowship. It is the only one in my field that does not require American citizenship but you need to be working on a project that supports a NASA mission in some way.
