Van Sickle Scholarship for Wisconsin law students
Federated Youth Foundation, the nonprofit organization that administers and disburses SCEC’s unclaimed funds, is again offering the Charles Van Sickle Scholarship in 2020. The $2,000 scholarship will be awarded during the Spring 2020 semester to a pre-law or law student who has an interest in cooperative law.
The scholarship is made possible by an endowment established in 2013 to honor Wisconsin’s renowned electric cooperative lobbyist and attorney, the late Charles Van Sickle.
- Eligibility: Pre-law or law students who reside in Wisconsin and have an interest in cooperative law are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to students whose parents or grandparents are members of cooperatives, credit unions or mutual insurance companies.
- Selection: By a committee appointed by the Foundation, based on leadership, scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities while working on his or her undergraduate degree, personal motivation, academic and life goals.
