Release date: 3/19/2018

Marquette Bank Supports Nearly 60 High School Students through Annual Scholarship Program

ORLAND PARK, IL. (March 16, 2018) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, has announced the 57 local high schools selected for the 2018 Marquette Bank Education Foundation Scholarship Program. The program, started in the 1966-67 school year, is in its 52nd year and celebrates a tradition of providing scholarships to graduating seniors from schools in Marquette Bank’s neighborhood footprint. Funded by the Marquette Bank Education Foundation, scholarships of $2,500 are awarded to students continuing their education who demonstrate financial need, have an outstanding record of community service and maintain at least a “B” average through their high school education. Since 1967, over $3.1 million has been awarded to over 1,600 Chicagoland high school seniors. 
 
“As a neighborhood bank, we want to recognize the most involved and dedicated students in our communities,” said Christie Cox, Director of Neighborhood Strategy. “By offering engaged students funds for college, we hope that they develop the tools needed to become active participants, professionals or leaders in their community as adults.”
 
Scholarship recipients are selected by their school’s principal, guidance counselors or a principal-appointed committee and are recognized at an awards ceremony. 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. Students are invited to apply through their guidance school office.
