UQ Paula and Tony Kinnane Music international awards

  • Bachelor
  • $10,000 p.a.

The Paula and Tony Kinnane Music Scholarship is awarded to the two Bachelor of Music (Honours) applicants showing greatest merit in an audition, with preference given to applicants from a rural or remote region of Queensland or the Northern Territory.

The scholarship was established in 2016 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.

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 Scholarship, named for her and her late husband, Tony Kinnane (died 2011), is one of the activities funded from that bequest.
