then will there be an university representative officer waiting for me at US airport or they will come to malaysia to meet me and bring me there ?
LOL! I'm really sorry for saying this, but I found that kinda funny. XP I've never, EVER heard of any university sending their representatives all around the world to escort international students to the country before. Think of how many students they'd have to do this for. Flight tickets ain't cheap you know!
And yeah, Azarimy is right. Some universities offer a meet-and-greet service at the airport where they pick you up when you arrive, but not all do that.

May i know when is this 'JPA Ivy League and equivalent scholarship' open for application?
Can anyone send me a link to the application webpage?

ARe we guaranteed this scholarship as long as we get into one of those universities?
The scholarship should be open sometime in the mid-year, which is around June/July, if last year's application season was any indication. Anyway, just pay closer attention to the newspapers. There'll usually be an announcement.
Googling the JPA website should give you JPA's official site. From there, just navigate to the scholarships link. However, the link would only appear during application season.
And yes, you're guaranteed the scholarship as long as you can get an offer in one of those universities.

Are other UK universities other than Oxbridge considered Ivy League and equivalent? Cos 'Ivy League and equivalent' applies to Australia's Go8 which would also be equivalent to other top UK universities.
Yeah, G08 may be equivalent by fact, but not in JPA's list. Might be due to the sheer amount of people who get into those 8 universities every year. Anyway, besides the Ivy Leagues and Oxbridge, if you get into Imperial, LSE or UCL you'll get the scholarship. Last year, however, JPA was generous and gave the scholarships to KCL students as well, though to be honest I'm not sure if they'll do the same thing this year, considering how bad the economic recession is.
