Apprenticeship funding

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) awards scholarship and apprenticeship funding of up to £18,000 to talented and aspiring craftspeople working in a broad range of skills, from farriery and jewellery design, to silversmithing, dry stone walling, glassblowing cheese maturing, sculpture and more. Our next application round is open 10 January – 14 February 2022 and we are looking for more talented applicants – would you be able to help us spread the word to your members, followers and network? 

QEST celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2020 and since 1990 has awarded over £5million to 650 individuals working in over 130 different crafts. We define craft broadly and welcome applications from all areas including rural skills, contemporary craft, conservation, luthiery and much more. A directory of all our alumni can be seen on our website, along with more details on how to apply – www.qest.org.uk (We have two application rounds each year – in January and July).

We will be holding three ‘How To Apply’ sessions on zoom to give advice and tips on the application process:
