The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation

Believing in the importance of acknowledging the fine accomplishments of high-achieving young people, the Maxwell Foundation is offering financial assistance of up to $5,000 for freshmen starting college during the current academic year. Students who plan to attend accredited independent colleges or universities and who are bona fide residents of Western Washington are urged to apply early. It is anticipated that scholarships for that academic year (other than renewals of previously awarded scholarships) will be limited to entering freshmen, with combined math and verbal SAT scores of over 1200 (or equivalent ACT scores). The Trustees of the Foundation will also consider the applicant's scores on the new 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.
