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.
“Young people are immediately empowered once they know that there are like-minded peers dreaming to make concrete impacts in the world as they do. The Millennium Fellowship creates such a network and enables us to accompany, inspire, and learn from each other. For me, this is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate our generation's shared compassion for all peoples, shared belief in the potential of this world, and shared ambition to make it better.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Advocate, Educate, and Fundraise for Children with UNICEF-Georgetown
UNICEF-Georgetown is a campus initiative under the umbrella of UNICEF-USA. In the upcoming academic year, UNICEF-Georgetown will focus on advocating, educating, and fundraising for children negatively impacted by asylum-seeking all over the world. UNICEF-Georgetown will launch a series of fundraisers, campaigns, and panels on and off-campus as well as regular teaching trips to local DC schools. Through their events, initiatives, and campaigns, they hope to raise $3000+ for UNICEF this year and reach out to 1000+ college students and their families, professors and scholars, residents in the greater DC area, schoolchildren, politicians, congresswomen and men, and more. UNICEF-Georgetown's impact will culminate in their annual Global Child Development Conference and UNICEF Gala, both will highlight children, migration, and justice this year.
