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 excited to continue working with passionate, highly motivated, and altruistic members of the Millennium Campus community. I am looking forward to learning more from them about how they consciously work to help solve complex global issues. These are initiatives and people I am confident will shape my mindset and how I choose to move forward in my career.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Global Living and Learning Community is a residential space on the Georgetown University campus, comprised of international, exchange, and American students. The goal is to encourage mindful global citizenship through opportunities for shared understanding and communication. Our goal is to hold 9 cultural, service, and service events every semester that students collaboratively organize together. These events have the over-arching goal of shedding light on global issues generally under-acknowledged by world media.
