We are pleased to advise that this year twenty five applications (11 female and 14 male) were lodged for Youth Development Scholarships this year.

It is worthy of note that since 1992 the Union has presented 139 scholarships to 71 young men and 68 young women many of whom went on to become very successful rowers and scullers with several representing Australia.
