You can also use connections.
Most of my observerships were granted by this way.
If you don't have any connection try to email professors of american universities asking for that. Send them your cv and tell then what you want, be specific so you won't waste your time and theirs. You can also ask to a home country professor about that, sometimes they know someone overseas.

if it doesn't work you can apply to a payed program or to a formal program. But then you will have to pay or you will have to wait for a long time, because formal programs require you to send a request way before the observership.
