The Maxwell Foundation provides financial resources to student leaders from Washington state.
The Foundation offers financial aid of up to $5,000 per year for freshmen starting a four-year private college program during the academic year.
Other requirements include: completing the online application, and composing a short essay. Scholarships also require that there must be financial need as determined by the standard FAFSA process.
Newly awarded scholarships will be limited to entering freshmen. The scholarship is renewable each year for a total of up to $20,000 over a four year period.
The scholarship is 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.
