raised of £10,000 target by 269 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to support Classics and Ancient Mediterranean students, PGRs and ECRs through microgrants.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

We are Sportula Europe, a mutual aid network of Classics and Classics-adjacent graduate students and early careers researchers that are committed to ensuring that students from working-class and historically exploited and oppressed communities do not fall through the cracks left by more traditional scholarship and funding schemes. We will provide microgrants of up to £100 on the basis of solidarity, no questions asked, to those who need it, centring the needs of students who are POCs, from lower income backgrounds, LGBTQ+ folx, and disabled people.

We will be using the JustGiving page to share updates about the campaign, and related posts from Sportula Europe members about the crossroads of classics, justice, and equity. You can follow us on Twitter [https://twitter.com/SportulaEurope] or Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/SportulaEurope], visit our Wordpress [sportulaeurope.wordpress.com], and email [sportula.europe at gmail.com] to request a microgrant. Thank you so much for supporting us in making the ancient world available to all!

    A quick update for everyone who has donated to us here on JustGiving, for which we are very very grateful! In approximately three weeks' time, we mark six months since our launch, and we'd love to reach our target of £5000 by that point, so please spread the word! On Twitter, we have been curating a list of short biographies for Black scholars in honour of Black History Month in the UK (see our pinned tweet, @SportulaEurope); we have also launched a Q&A initiative under the hashtag #NewInAntiquity. See Twitter for more details of these & more!

    It's been just over three weeks since we launched, and we've already reached our initial target of £1000. Thank you for giving generously to help us reach this goal! We've already started giving out our first microgrants, and will be distributing more next week as funds are processed and enter our account. Today, we have also launched our website - sportulaeurope.wordpress.com - with information on how to donate, request microgrants and get in touch. Over the coming weeks, we hope to update with blog posts, recommended reading and much more!
