Orland Park, IL (February 15, 2012) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, has announced the 55 local high schools selected to participate in the 2012 Marquette Bank Education Foundation Scholarship Program. The program has a 46-year tradition of providing scholarships to graduating seniors from neighborhoods near Marquette Bank’s 24 branch locations. Funded by the Marquette Bank Education Foundation, the scholarships are available to students who demonstrate financial need, maintain at least a “B” average and have an outstanding record of community service. Since 1967, over $2.3 million has been awarded to more than 1,281 Chiacgoland high school students.
“We’re committed to strengthening our neighborhoods by investing in student leaders who give back to the community through volunteerism and service,” said George Moncada, President.
The 2012 scholarship amount is $2,500. Scholarship recipients are selected by their school’s principal or guidance counselors 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.
