The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust

March 2013

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) is the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holder Association and was established in 1990 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Association and the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Since its inception, QEST has granted 296 scholarships to a varied talent pool of craftsmen and women to further fund study, training and practical experience for those who wish to improve their craft and trade skills.

The Foundation has set up a scholarship with QEST to nurture new talent and promote craftsmanship in the fields of Ceramics, Glass and Silver. Working with QEST the Foundation aims to preserve the heritage and skills of craft making in the UK.
