Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust

Supporting excellence in British craftsmanship

Endowed by the Royal Warrant Holders Association to advance education in modern and traditional crafts and trades in the UK, Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust awards scholarships of up to £18,000 to men and women of all ages twice a year. Since 1991, the Trust has awarded £1.8 million to 273 craftsmen and women aged between 17 and 50+ to develop their skills through study, training and work experience.

The Trustees look for well thought out projects, which will contribute to the pool of talent in the UK and reflect the excellence of British craftsmanship as symbolised by the Royal Warrant of Appointment. Your donations help craftspeople in Britain to achieve their potential and contribute to a thriving craft sector, people like Mia whose QEST grant helped develop her skills, build her business and move her career forward.
