We’ve partnered with Sheffield Hallam since 2019, funding scholarships and bursaries for students with little or no access to financial support.
Our donations to the Department of the Natural & Built Environment are used to support two schemes: The Europa Scholarship and The Europa Bursaries. To date we have donated £30,000 towards the bursaries and are providing three-year scholarships worth £9,000 to a first-year undergraduate studying Real Estate.

Sheffield Hallam has one of the largest intakes of students from disadvantaged backgrounds and the financial help is designed to help students overcome any financial barriers they may face so they can achieve their full potential.
Europa supports this charity that gives shelter and support to the homeless in London. Glassdoor operates London’s largest open-access network of emergency winter shelters and support services, where visitors receive a warm welcome, a hot supper and breakfast, cooked and served by volunteers. These free services are a life-line to those who would otherwise be sleeping on the street.
