The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation
The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation believes it is important to acknowledge the 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 private college program during the 2015-2016 academic year. The scholarship is renewable each year for a total of up to $20,000 over a four year period. 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. Other requirements include: completing the application fully, composing a short essay, and achieving test scores on the combined math/reading SAT scores of 1200 or more (or equivalent ACT scores). Scholarships require that there must be financial need as determined by the standard FAFSA process. Newly awarded scholarships will be limited to entering freshmen.
The scholarships are designed to provide assistance to those who have shown ability, aptitude and a promise of useful citizenship and also have a financial need. Each recipient will be a living memorial to Edmund F. Maxwell.
