More resources... UK and USA

This British Embassy answers most questions you will have about the United Kingdom.
Describes itself as the official online gateway to Higher Education and Research in the UK. There's a specific section for international students.

EduPass gives a good introduction to student issues like housing, visas, credential evaluation, American history and culture. Also provides a list of US colleges and universities that give financial aid to the greatest number of international students.
Provides a search tool for campuses in the US based on academic level, course, amount you can pay and geographic preference. Lists education fairs but unfortunately, there's none for the Philippines.
The Institute of International Education website provides detailed descriptions of the institute's grant programs for US and international students to study in the US.
Government grants, fellowships and student exchanges for international students to study in the US. Includes link to Fulbright Program.
Aside from being a survival guide for international students, it also provides information on scholarships available to them.
Links on how to prepare for college (SAT, etc.), finding a college, applying for college and paying for it. Targeted towards undergrads.
Insternational Student Organization's information health insurance for foreign students and non-US citizens.
The AAUW Education Foundation offers graduate fellowships to women with Bachelor's degrees (or the equivalent). Candidates cannot be citizens or permanent residents of the US. These fellowships are meant to support graduate students writing doctoral dissertations and post-doctoral scholars conducting research in the United States. The fellowship for 2009 schoolyear has passed.
