Applications open for QEST craft scholarships


The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) is offering grants of up to £18,000 to talented and aspiring craftspeople in a range of disciplines.

The scholarships fund the education and training of any individual UK resident, aged 17 or older, who would like to improve their craft skills.

QEST has been supporting craftspeople and championing excellence in craft since 1990. It funds traditional college courses, vocational training or one to one training with a master craftsperson.

The charity wants to support excellence in British craftsmanship so is looking for established makers, planning to stay in the UK and contribute to the craft sector.

QEST encourages applications from a broad range of crafts and are excited by contemporary craftsmanship and innovative applications of traditional craft techniques.

Applications close on 10 February.
