Donation to arts, research and
higher education learning

There are 16,600 talented students at Metropolia. With your support, they have all it takes to grow into a key role in international positions. In addition to what we teach them, they need to have a vision of the world and a bit of help to make it to the top and to develop their networks.

Donation to Metropolia

Metropolia has many things you can make a donation for, ranging from opera and film productions to technology laboratories and premises named after yourself or your organization. Or, you can make a difference by donations for services in health care and wellbeing, just to name some examples.

Research projects also need external resources. Funding is also required for scholarships for foreign degree students (from outside the EU and EEA).
