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 Tony and Paula Kinnane who were lifetime lovers of art, art galleries, and collected art for their own pleasure, and to support emerging art museum professionals and art museums, especially in rural and regional Australia.
