McLean, VA — UNITY Journalists of Color, Inc., has received a $100,000 grant from The Ford Foundation to implement a New U: News Entrepreneurs Working through UNITY (New U) project. The New U project will support the creative ideas of participating journalists of color through a series of two-day “boot camps” at each of the four summer 2010 UNITY alliance partners’ conventions. In addition to offering training and one-on-one mentoring, the program will include a competition for start-up funding to assist news entrepreneurs to realize their ideas.
