The Maxwell Foundation provides financial resources to student leaders from Washington state.
To recognize high academic achievement, The Foundation offers financial aid of up to $5,000 per year for freshmen starting a four-year program at a private university or college.
The award is based on students’ academic records, the submission of a personal essay, and a summary of extracurricular activities.
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. Winners are chosen on the basis of their abilities, leadership skills, and academic accomplishments and interests. Recipients are the candidates judged to have the greatest potential for success in rigorous college studies and beyond.
Each recipient will be a living memorial to Edmund F. Maxwell.
