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.
“I'm incredibly excited to connect with fellow students who are equally as passionate about making our world a better place.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Becoming a Mother: A Human Right
The Edna Adan Hospital is a non-profit charity and the first maternity hospital in Somaliland. It works to tackle many issues, including reducing the world’s highest rates in maternal and infant mortality, training the next generation of women to become midwives and advocating against the practice of female genital mutilation. This semester, I hope to raise $2,000 in funds for the Edna Adan Hospital Foundation by organizing events in the D.C. area.
