Schwab Brokerage Accounts

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 attain financial security.

Schwab Brokerage Account Particulars  
1. Each second year recipient will be provided with a $15,000 Schwab Brokerage Account to manage until graduation in order to learn how to invest to attain financial security.
2. Each recipient will learn how to select and research common stock, write investment reports and purchase and sell stock.
3. 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 recipient) will be transferred to the recipient’s personal Schwab Account, see 4 below. Recipients will not be responsible for any loss in their brokerage Account.
4. Each recipient must establish a personal Schwab Brokerage Account the fall semester of their fourth year of college in order to start planning, saving, and investing to attain financial security. After the personal accounts are established HSF will deposit $2,000 in each account.
