With our student subscription plans, students can now get unlimited access to The Republic by paying less than $1.99/month.
Since The Republic started, we have found the following important:
∗ striving to fill knowledge gaps no matter how slim or vast;
∗ providing a perspective on the world that is rooted in place (Nigeria being this place at the moment); and
∗ working to ensure that our publishing model occupies the sweet spot between accessibility and sustainability.
Simply put, we want to be here for a long time, but we also want to grow and, more importantly, with you, our readers.
On a personal level, I believe it is necessary that those who need The Republic the most, students, are able to engage with us in a convenient manner. I started The Republic as a student and understand how much of a difference it can make to one’s studies to find a resource that is not only engaging but also relevant and representative. In my time as Editor, I have learnt from many students and education practitioners how valuable The Republic has been as a learning companion and as an avenue for connecting with an engaging network of policymakers, business leaders, acclaimed journalists and artists, distinguished professionals and emerging young scholars.
Today, I am pleased to announce that students can now get unlimited access to The Republic at any time by paying less than $1.99/month. Many of our readers will know this is an area we have been working on for at least two years. A huge roadblock was verifying students from universities based in Africa. While we still intend to solve that challenge, it is essential to our mission that students do not bear the costs of our continent’s weak educational infrastructure.
As Africans ourselves, we understand the struggles and indignities many African students face in trying to excel both in and beyond Africa. It is why we are launching two subscription plans for students and, respectfully, won’t be asking for ID or verification when students subscribe. Students, we want to be there when you make your first intellectual breakthroughs and want to support you at every step of your academic and, ultimately, professional journeys. Parents, mentors, friends, our student subscriptions can also be gifted and we’re excited to support you as you invest in and empower those closest to you.
I look forward to growing and sharing our community with you.
