The Marshall Legacy feature (NCE 7 February) noted many good ideas but it was gratifying that the proposal attracting most support was to set up a scholarship fund to benefit undergraduates and graduates.
Such a fund already exists - the Queen Elizabeth Educational Scholarship Trust (QUEST). This is a charity within the ICE specifically established in 1977 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the Queen and income generated from invested funds is used to support the awards.
Awards are made to students about to enter university who have demonstrated they are tomorrow's highflyers. Around 40 scholarships are awarded each year and more than 600 students have benefited.
Support is also given to midcareer initiatives, including overseas travel and continuing education awards.
