Answer

Here you go I hope:

https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/search?part=id%2Csnippet&q={channel name}&type=channel&key={API KEY}

Explanation as I understand:

youtube.com/c/{CHANNEL_NAME} is not the same as youtube.com/channel/{CHANNEL ID}

Youtube V3 wants you to use Channel ID for all requests. That GET will provide you with what you want AFIK using the Channel name /c/THIS.
