The Federated Youth Foundation is accepting applications for the 2018 Charles Van Sickle Scholarship, a $2,000 award open to a pre-law or law student who resides in Wisconsin and plans to specialize in cooperative law. The scholarship is made possible by an endowment established in 2013 to honor the late Charles Van Sickle, a renowned electric cooperative lobbyist and attorney.
“We continue to see a demand for highly skilled attorneys with knowledge of cooperatively owned businesses and their unique needs,” said Federated Youth Foundation’s Executive Director Ethan Giebel. “The Van Sickle Endowment is an extraordinary way to assist students interested in pursuing degrees in cooperative law and honoring the contributions and legacy of Charles Van Sickle.”
