Fulton Bank honored for Military Internship program

Fulton Bank has earned an American Bankers Association Award (ABA) for its Military Internship program. Fulton is one of eight banks nationally and internationally to be named 2023 Community Commitment Award winners. 

Banks are recognized for the ABA’s annual awards for their extraordinary corporate social responsibility efforts ranging from affordable housing to economic inclusion. Award winners will be recognized at the ABA convention Oct. 10 in Nashville, Tenn. 

“Fulton Bank is honored to receive this award recognizing our efforts to support veterans as they transition to the civilian workforce,” Curt Myers, Chairman, president and CEO of Fulton Financial Corporation, said in a statement. “We are grateful for the wide range of expertise, resourcefulness and commitment that service members contribute to our company, our communities, and our country each day.” 

Fulton Bank’s Military Internship program, now in its 10th year, is a six-month internship that helps veterans transition from military service to the civilian workforce with on-the-job training in the financial services industry. Upon completion of the internship, the program provides job search support both within Fulton and throughout the banking industry.

Fulton Bank has worked with more than 168 veteran interns and hired 42 of them for full-time positions since the program’s launch in 2019. Wells Fargo of San Antonio also won an ABA award for supporting military families.

“I am continually amazed and proud of the work America’s banks do to support communities nationwide,” said Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO. “The efforts of the banks recognized this year have changed the lives of many and showcase the very best our industry has to offer. I hope other institutions will join me in applauding their good work and duplicating it where possible.”

Made up of independent, national experts in each category, the selection committee reviewed bank nominations from across the country and chose winners based on specific criteria including the creativity and thoughtfulness of the bank program. According to the ABA, Community Commitment Award winners must embody the ideals of corporate social responsibility and demonstrate success in measurable terms.

ABA awards also went to Dollar Bank in Pittsburgh (Affordable Housing); United Bank, Vienna, VA (Community and Economic Development); Huntington National Bank, Columbus, Ohio, (Economic Inclusion); Bank of Guam, Hagatna, Guam (Financial Education); The Corporate Bank, Roslindale, Mass. (Protecting Older Americans); and Comerica Bank, Dallas (Volunteerism).

“These eight winning programs exemplify the transformational impact that banks can have in the communities they serve,” said Lindsay Torrico, executive director, ABA Foundation. “All of these initiatives required dedication and commitment from bank leadership and the employees involved. We’re pleased to have this opportunity to shine a light on their efforts to drive community and economic change.”
