The Federated Youth Foundation (FYF) is now accepting applications for the 2021 Charles Van Sickle Scholarship. This $2,000 award will be given to a pre-law or law student with an interest in pursuing cooperative law. This is the fourth time FYF is offering the scholarship, which was made possible by an endowment established in 2013 to honor Wisconsin’s renowned electric cooperative lobbyist and attorney, the late Charles Van Sickle.
The scholarship is open to pre-law or law students who reside in Wisconsin and have an interest in cooperative law. Applicants who have parents or grandparents that are members of cooperatives, credit unions, or mutual insurance companies are preferred.
To be eligible, students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applicants will be judged on leadership, scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, personal motivation, and academic and life goals.
To be considered, interested persons must submit an application, most recent transcripts, a personal essay, three references, and a copy of their spring schedule by April 2, 2021.

The scholarship will be awarded during the Spring 2021 semester.
