The King & Amy O’Malley Trust each year awards scholarships to students applying for, or enrolling in, tertiary Home Economics or equivalent programs. The Trust has a scholarship panel in each state to assess the applicants and awards three different levels of scholarships:

  • undergraduate - full-time
  • post graduate - full-time
  • post graduate - part-time.

Further details about the application process including selection criteria and application forms can be found on the King & Amy O’Malley Trust website. The scholarship application process opens in April every year and applications are due on the last Friday of July each year.

The King & Amy O’Malley Trust website provides information about King O’Malley, an Australian parliamentarian, and his wife Amy and why they both instructed in their wills that their estates be used for Home Economics scholarships. Their belief that Australian family life ought to be strengthened and supported for the sake of the nation, through the empowerment of individuals and families lead to the establishment of the King & Amy O’Malley Trust, and the awarding annually of undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships for students applying for or enrolled in tertiary Home Economics or equivalent programs, such as Consumer Science, Family and Consumer Studies, Food and Nutrition, and teacher education.
