I was wondering what is the value of SCJP and SCWCD if you are one. Does it improve the chances of getting scholarship in the US for a masters program.

I don't know that having a certification as a credential will necessarily help you get admitted to a masters program - I do know that some schools will accept it either as credit once you're in (in lieu of taking a class) or at the very least use it to waive you from requirements... but you might check with the program in question that you're considering first.

Either way, I don't think I'd seek out certification purely on the basis of 'it might help me get into school'.

I think GMAT or GRE will be more useful in this case
 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
