The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) makes awards ranging up to £15,000 to craftsmen and women of all ages to help them further their careers. Since 1991 the Trust has awarded £1.35 million to 208 craftspeople aged between 17 and 50 plus for study, training and work experience.
QEST was established in 1990 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Royal Warrant Holders Association and the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. There is no age limit. But you need to demonstrate you already have a high level of skill and are firmly committed to your craft or trade.
Deadline: 8 January 2010
