ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“Being a minority woman myself, I have always wanted to ensure that the younger generations have the support that many of us have lacked and I am excited to be able to do just that with the help of this fellowship.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Education for All
Education for All was created to improve the quality of education and support given to minority students in primary education. Our goal is to provide minority girls with the support they need to have them understand that college is not only a big accomplishment, but it is a goal they can reach. My personal goal is to know that minority girls can become the women of the future and lead a successful career that will begin to close the pay gap and the inequality in the workforce.
