From 2005 to 2009 the Rotary Club of Corowa offered two scholarships of $2,500 to Corowa High School students. The scholarships were for students who had just completed year 12 and were going on to tertiary studies. The funds were provided to help to defray the cost of books, fees, board etc. The only requirement we had was that the students did not defer or take a gap year after completing high school.
To raise money we held a gala dinner dance once a year and also ran a major raffle. Unfortunately due to lack of support by the students the club decided to cease the fundraising effort, but it was fun while it lasted.
