Description

The Paula and Tony Kinnane Art History Scholarship was established to support students undertaking undergraduate studies in art history.

The scholarship was established in 2017 and is maintained by the income of a perpetual endowment fund from a bequest to The University of Queensland under the will of Paula Ruth Kinnane, who graduated from The University of Queensland in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

The scholarship recognises Paula and Tony Kinnane, who were lifetime lovers of art, art galleries, and collecting art for their own pleasure.

Paula and Tony Kinnane

Paula Ruth Kinnane (died 2014) was an alumna of UQ (BA 1991) and a supporter of the UQ Art Museum and School of Music. Following her death, The University of Queensland received a generous bequest to assist students in regional areas through access to higher education in the arts. The Paula and Tony Kinnane Art History Scholarship, named for her and her late husband, Tony Kinnane (died 2011), is one of the activities funded from that bequest.
