Welcome to the Rotary Club of Corowa

Our Club was chartered on May 17th 1939 by the Rotary Club of Albury and we are the second oldest Club in Rotary District 9790.

We currently have 40 members and are actively working in promoting Polio Plus, which is aimed at eradicating polio world wide. We also support local community projects including school bursaries, adopt a highway clean-up program, exchange students and many more. In 2014 we took over organisation of the Federation Festival and started to reinvigorate the Federation monthly market and Federation (B&S) Ball. In 2016 we introduced Federation Dinner and Tim Fischer Oration to be held on the Friday of the Australia Day weekend and revived the Federation Parade.

Fred Taylor Memorial Scholarship 2024

Fred Taylor


Each year The Rotary Club of Corowa offers a $3,000 Tertiary Scholarship for students undertaking full time tertiary studies in that current year.

Applications are invited from students who are residents of Corowa, or if currently studying away from Corowa, were residents whilst completing Year 12.

The Memorial Scholarship is funded by a legacy from the Estate of the late Fred Taylor who was a long term and distinguished member of the Rotary Club of Corowa. The scholarship has been established in accordance with Fred’s wishes to give assistance to local students in meeting costs associated with their studies.

The scholarship is open to any student undertaking full time tertiary study, irrespective of which year of the course they are undertaking. It is also open to those undertaking full time post graduate studies at University and TAFE courses.

Applications are now open for 2024 and will close 5pm on Friday April 12th, 2024.
