You may apply for a scholarship between £1,000 and £18,000. Please ensure that your monetary request is 100% accurate as QEST will be unable to amend your grant, should your application be successful.
You will need to provide 5 hi-res images of your work (min. 500KB) and minimum 1 signed reference in PDF form.
Please note that scholarships are not awarded to buy or lease equipment or premise, nor to fund courses in general further education unrelated to a craft skill. We do not consider applications that request funds for business start-up costs.
Scholarships are only awarded to those whose permanent residence is within the United Kingdom. We only consider applicants from those who have the legal right to live and work permanently within the UK. Please note that QEST does not get involved in any visa or immigration processes.
