Schwab Brokerage Accounts

The Schwab Brokerage Accounts are an integral part of the Hagan Scholarship and are intended to provide recipients with the opportunity to learn “hands-on” how to invest to provide for their long-term financial security.

Schwab Brokerage Account Particulars  
1. Each recipient will be provided with a $15,000 Schwab Brokerage Account to manage the first semester of their second year of college.
2. Each recipient will learn at HSF Workshops how to select and research common stock, write investment reports, and purchase and sell stock.
3. Each recipient will manage their assigned Schwab Brokerage Account for the following 2.5 years.
4. After graduation from college and fulfillment of all recipient responsibilities, ALL stock appreciation and dividends in each recipient’s Schwab Brokerage Account (up to $10,000 per account) will be transferred to the recipient’s personal Schwab Account, see 5 below. Recipients will not be responsible for any loss in their Schwab Brokerage Account.
5. Each recipient will establish a personal Schwab Account the fall semester of their fourth year of college in order to start planning, saving, and investing for their long term financial security. After the personal accounts are established HSF will deposit $2,000 in each account.
