Network Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust Governmental / Para-governmental organisation

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) was established in 1990 as the charity of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, the organisation representing companies and individuals who supply goods and services to the Households of HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales. QEST's aim is to sustain Britain's cultural heritage by supporting the training and education of talented and aspiring craftsmen and women. This can be through traditional college courses, craft apprenticeships and one-on-one training with masters. To date, QEST has funded more than 460 people across 130 different crafts, from stonemasonry to handloom weaving, cordwaining to woodcarving, giving over £4 million in scholarships and apprenticeships. Some 93 percent of QEST's alumni are still practising their craft and are contributing back into their field through teaching and mentoring.
