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.
“With the wealth of knowledge and resources that students can provide I hope to bridge the gap between Georgia Tech and the Greater Atlanta community, to allow students in low-income schools to have the same opportunities that we do.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sharing Your STEM
Engaging groups of students to travel to Clarkston to work with refugee elementary/middle school students to share STEM experiences with them such as basic programming (e.g. Hour of Code) and 3D modeling/printing, to motivate them to pursue success in school and a future career in STEM. Looking to expand this to other schools in the Greater Atlanta Area to share some of the experiences we at Georgia Tech have on a daily basis that others may not. We hope to also share advice with parents of these students to help them prepare for college admissions. My goal is to host weekly trips to Clarkston Community Center and other communities we can reach in the Greater Atlanta area, reaching twenty children in Clarkston and over fifty in other locations.
