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.
“I am incredibly honored to have been selected as a Millennium Fellow. Strategies to ameliorate campus-wide food insecurity will require the collaboration of many student leaders, and I am eager to work with other like-minded individuals to enact effective social change.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Campus Kitchens Project
The Campus Kitchens Project is dedicated to fighting food insecurity in the Georgia Tech community primarily through repurposing leftover meals from the campus dining halls. Through the Millennium Fellowship, The Campus Kitchens Project aims to develop a food recovery program for Georgia Tech's Greek organizations as well as implement "on-a-budget" cooking demonstrations in food pantries around the Greater Atlanta area.
