Sportula Europe is crowdfunding

raised of £5,000 target by 167 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 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.


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 [] or Facebook [], visit our Wordpress [], and email [sportula.europe at] to request a microgrant. Thank you so much for supporting us in making the ancient world available to all!

    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 - - 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!
