Criteria: 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 2020-2021 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 2020. 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.
