The scholarship is supported from an endowment established through gifts from the Palm Sunday Rally for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament, and many individual and organisational donors, in recognition of the life and achievements of Senator George Georges. When the Palm Sunday Rally for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament organisation ceased operations, the George Georges Scholarship Support Committee assumed responsibility for managing these functions.
