Orland Park, IL (Feb. 07, 2014) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, has announced the 54 local high schools selected for the 2014 Marquette Bank Education Foundation Scholarship Program. The program has a 48-year tradition of providing scholarships to graduating seniors from neighborhoods near Marquette Bank’s 22 branch locations. Funded by the Marquette Bank Education Foundation, the scholarships are available to students who demonstrate financial need, have an outstanding record of community service and maintain at least a “B” average. Since 1967, over $2.6 million has been awarded to over 1,300 Chicagoland high school students. “As a neighborhood bank, we want to acknowledge and reward those graduating seniors who have demonstrated a strong commitment to our neighborhoods through volunteering and completing service projects,” George Moncada, Marquette Bank President said. “Providing financial support encourages these students to further their education and will help them to become future leaders of the community, which will benefit the entire community as a whole.” Scholarship recipients are selected by their school’s principal, guidance counselors or principal-appointed committee and are recognized at an awards ceremony attended by friends and family. The scholarship can be used to cover expenses at any higher education program including: four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, vocational training or trade schools.
