Support the Charles Litsky Memorial Scholarship!

Charles Litsky Memorial Scholarship A Project of CLAS Department of Journalism: Journalism Fund

The Charles Litsky Memorial Scholarship was established by Frank Litsky '46 (CLAS), a New York Times sports writer and editor, in memory of his son, Charlie, a member of the USA BMX Hall of Fame. He was a passionate BMX racer and promoter whose expertise led him to do commentary for some of the earliest televised BMX races. He died at 32 in 1993, shortly after completing a race.

Gifts to this fund provide scholarship support for journalism students based on academic achievement.
