Webinars to help you gain an £18,000 QEST Scholarship 13 & 28 July

QEST Scholarship applications

The next QEST Scholarship applications open 11 July.

Applications to QEST for funding of up to £18,000 to help you improve your skills are being invited between 11 July and 15 August.

Since it was founded in 1990, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) has awarded more than £5.2million to 675 individuals working in 130-or-so different crafts.

And it continues to support its Scholars throughout their careers, often putting them forward for prestigious exhibitions and awards.

It defines craft broadly and welcomes applications from people involved in skills ranging from stonemasonry, thatching and jewellery design to glassblowing and millinery.

You can see some of the people who have benefitted from a QEST scholarship on its website, where you will also find details about how to apply to become a QEST Scholar. 

And if you want a bit of help putting together your application, there are Zoom ‘How To’ sessions coming up about the submission process, with tips that will help you get your application accepted. These sessions will take place as follows:
