I am a second year physics undergraduate in a not so famous University. However, I have constantly received top marks in my class and I have just published a paper of mine in one of the highest ranking journals in my field, with reviewers expressing extreme interest in my work and I am working on a second paper. My question is will this help me get a masters scholarship in a western university?

Definitely! Why 'Masters'? If what you said is true, then aim for a PhD. I am sure any universities will offer you a scholarship when you wave your marks and paper at them.

Note: every university has a fixed number of scholarships. So if one doesn't give you a scholarship, don't be too discouraged. It just means there are students with a better CV than yours. However, there are many universities and only a very small percentage will have that kind of CV.
