Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust Application Open

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) funds the education of talented and aspiring craftspeople through traditional college courses, apprenticeships or one-on-one training with masters. The application period for scholarships and apprenticeships opens on Monday 8 January 2018 and closes 12 February 2018.

About QEST

QEST was established to help support craftspeople of all ages and from all backgrounds, at a critical stage in their careers and thus sustain traditional British craftsmanship.

To be accepted as a scholar or apprentice of QEST is much more than receiving financial support for your training. It means being welcomed into a unique family of craft, where the alumni are as interested in the work that you have achieved as indeed the holders of Royal Warrants of Appointment.

If your application captures the attention of the QEST Trustees and Skills Advisors, you will be invited to attend an interview, where you will be given the opportunity to show samples of your work, highlight what you would like to achieve should you be given the opportunity of funding and display a passion for your chosen craft. Scholars will have already been practising their craft and demonstrate a level of excellence. Apprentices must apply for funding in partnership with their employer or master.
