Each university’s website has more info on financial aid and US federal aid can follow you. My daughter (current high school junior) has set her sights on going to university in the UK or Ireland. She is leaning toward Strathclyde at the moment and they do have the potential for scholarships and aid.
The University of Strathclyde will accept students under the new Direct Loan programme and GI Bill. For assistance, please contact our finance team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

You need to dig through each university’s website, but we have found that quite a few do work with FAFSA and many offer scholarships to International Students.
Here’s a scholarship from Strathclyde specifically for international students:
"Dean’s International Excellence Award - Undergraduate: Humanities and Social Sciences
This scholarship is for new international students who will begin a full-time undergraduate course in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in September 2020. The award is a £3,500 scholarship per year for the duration of their degree. All offer holders are eligible for this scholarship."
So there is indeed money out there for US students, you just have to look for it.
