EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) — The charitable arm of PNC Financial Services Group says it’s pledging a quarter-million dollars to support economics education at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg.

The Catholic school announced the gift Thursday from the Pittsburgh-based PNC Foundation.

It will provide program support and scholarships for students participating in the College Federal Reserve Challenge.

The challenge is a competition in which teams of undergraduate students make presentations about monetary policy to a panel of Federal Reserve economists.
