CSU Foundation Scholarship

Rotary Club of Albury
Foundation Scholarship
For the last 16 years, the Rotary Club of Albury has conducted the ‘Murray Darling School of Freshwater Research’ for year 10 students from the Murray Darling catchment area. The school has hosted up to 50 students each year, with the assistance of CSU and La Trobe Universities, giving the students valuable experience, working and studying with scientists and undergraduates (as mentors). This demonstrates the passion the Albury Rotary Club has towards this scientific field.
