The Rotary Club of Bendigo South gives out multiple scholarships to local students at a secondary school level.

These scholarships are each named after much-loved and respected current and former members of the Club.

Each scholarship is worth a significant sum of money, which can be used to fund textbooks or other study related purposes as a student moves from Year 10 into Year 11. The Club also offers a music bursary to students of Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

Each year, past recipients return to the Club to speak to members on how their scholarship has been valuable to them in their schooling, as well as to discuss their hopes and dreams for the future.

Currently schools which receive scholarships from the Club include:

  • Catholic College Bendigo
  • Bendigo South East
  • Crusoe College
  • East Loddon Prep-12
  • Girton Grammar
  • Bendigo Senior Secondary College (Music Bursary)
