Whitworth University is widely regarded as one of the best higher-education values in the Western United States. A Whitworth degree is a great investment for the student who seeks to prepare for a successful career and a life that makes a difference in the world. We recognize that this investment is significant, and we are committed to partnering with families to keep a Whitworth education within reach.
The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation
Believing in the importance of acknowledging the fine accomplishments of high-achieving students, the Maxwell Foundation is offering scholarships of up to $5,000 per year for freshmen starting a four-year college during the 2014-2015 academic year. 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. Applicants must have a combined math and reading SAT score (not including the score on the writing section) of over 1200 (or equivalent ACT scores) and have demonstrated financial need as calculated through the FAFSA. The Trustees of the Foundation may also consider the applicant's scores on the writing portion of the SAT. The scholarships are designed to provide assistance to those who have shown ability, aptitude and a promise of useful citizenship.
Application forms can be found on The Edmund F. Maxwell Foundation website. The deadline for applications to be submitted to the Foundation is April 30, 2014.
