2021 Marquette Bank Scholarship Program
Release date: 6/21/2021
Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, continued its half-century tradition of awarding scholarships to local graduating seniors. This year, the Marquette Bank Education Foundation awarded individual scholarships of $2,500 to 61 graduating seniors from Chicagoland schools.
"Marquette Bank is proud to support these graduates as they take the next step in their education. These future community leaders and professionals have shown their commitment to service and to making a difference in their community," George Moncada, President and CEO of Marquette Bank, said. "Service to the community and making a difference are part of our culture at Marquette Bank. We look forward to helping our neighbors and neighborhoods bounce back stronger in the months ahead."
Since the scholarship program began during the 1968 school year, more than $3.7 million has been awarded to over 1,850 high school seniors from Chicagoland neighborhoods. Students were selected based on financial need, scholastic achievement and a record of volunteer service in their communities. The scholarship can be used for any post-secondary education program, including four-year universities, community colleges and vocational training schools.
The scholarship program is funded by the Marquette Bank Education Foundation (MBEF) and scholarships were awarded to students chosen by their school's guidance counselors and principals.
