Apply for craft grant funding from QEST

Once again, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) has opened for applications for its grant funding of up to £18,000 for UK makers.

Talented and aspiring craftspeople who want to take their craft to the next level can apply for up to £18,000 in funding for Scholarships, up to £10,000 for Emerging Maker Grants and up to £12,000 for Apprenticeship training.

Many glass artists have benefited from this support over the years, which goes beyond money, often providing opportunities to exhibit in prestigious locations, as well as take part in collaborations and receive commissions through its extensive craft network.

Applications close on Monday 12 August 2024 at 5pm.

The QEST charity has awarded more than £6m to almost 800 individuals working across the UK in 130 different craft disciplines.

There are three optional ‘How To Apply’ Zoom sessions to introduce interested makers to the different funding available, providing tips and advice for filling in an application and the opportunity for a Q&A:
