schools in the us

i’m from germany and i’d like to study graphic design or communication design in the us,
where can i find good schools (in bigger cities!!! like ny, chicago, washington, san francisco, la, …), addresses, information, anything about that? and information about stipendias & stuff like that… ?!

Here is the AIGA school database (graphic design):
