The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship (QEST), supports excellence in British craftsmanship by funding the training and education of talented and aspiring craftspeople and makers.

The charity awards up to £18,000 to support individuals' craft training, including college courses, vocational training, a series of short courses or one-to-one training with a master craftsperson.

Craftspeople that can apply for a QEST Scholarship include: artists, bookbinders, fashion designers, jewellery makers, furniture makers, stone masons, dry-liners, silversmiths, shoemakers, metal workers, illustrators, calligraphers, furniture makers, printmakers, bricklayers, stained glass conservators and horticulturalists.

The next round of applications opens in January.
