CoPress, an initiative on its way to becoming a non-profit organization, has submitted another grant application. We’re building a better technical eco-system for student news organizations, which means that we’re creating the tools and means for the techie kids at student newspapers to share ideas, collaborate on code, and generally work together to develop really legit websites. To do this, though, will require a bit of effort (which we’re already been putting forth) and a bit of money (which we as students don’t have much of).
Ashoka’s Changemakers has a pretty cool competition called “The Power of Us: Re-imagine Media” that might help us out. The winner(s) will receive $50,000 towards their project. If you vote for us, which we very much hope you do, it might just be CoPress.
