The Quercus Talented Students' Programme is a scholarship programme that supports and promotes excellence in academia, sport, creative and performing arts, active citizenship & innovation/entrepreneurship. Quercus is the Latin for oak - or Arabic for cork- the cork that is derived from the cork oak in Iberia.
