Why our Questor bursaries exist.
The Trust offers bursaries to children and young people from low or lower-income families who have the potential for high attainment (possibly though not necessarily academically) but who are not achieving at the level they could reach and cannot afford to take part in activities that:

- enable them to explore existing interests or mastery of skills in greater depth
