About the Brandes Scholarship Program
The Brandes Scholarship Program is designed to educate young people between 18 and 22 years of age about the world of investing and to introduce the personality traits that are outlined in the Know-Your-Client (KYC) form—an information form you need to fill out to open an investment account. The program gives students the opportunity to win one of five $4,000 scholarships and includes a multiple-choice investing personality quiz with an essay-based question.
Brandes Investment Partners, L.P. (Brandes) is passionate about educating future investors. The Brandes Scholarship Program’s aim is to promote fiscal knowledge and responsibility with students and provide financial assistance for students pursuing college education.
