The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation
Believing in the importance of acknowledging the fine accomplishments of high-achieving
students, the Maxwell Foundation is offering financial aid of up to $5,000 per year
for freshmen starting a four-year college program during the 2015-2016 academic
year. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years for a total of up to $20,000.
Students who plan to pursue a four-year degree at an accredited private college
or university and who are bona fide residents of Western Washington are urged
to apply in early 2015. It is anticipated that scholarships for that academic year
(other than renewals of previously awarded scholarships) will be limited to entering
freshmen, who have combined math and reading SAT scores (not including the score
on the writing section) of over 1200 (or equivalent ACT scores) and who have demonstrated
financial need. The Trustees of the Foundation may also consider the applicant's
scores on the writing portion of the SAT.
The scholarships are designed to provide assistance to those who have demonstrated
financial need and have shown ability, aptitude and a promise of useful citizenship.
Each recipient will be a living memorial to Edmund F. Maxwell.
