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 believe technology and youth-run ventures have the potential to change the world. At the core of every business is people. It's in our power to create the next generation of companies that serve people and our planet for good.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Trill Project
Trill Project is an anonymous, safe, and supportive mobile social networking application. Trill is a combination of the words True and Real. Our goal is to make the Internet (and world) a kinder and more equitable place.
This fall we are launching our campus ambassador fellowship on 10 campuses. We have the goal to host an event on each of these campuses to promote the creation of inclusive, safe spaces and start conversations for young people about mental health, identity, and other issues marginalized communities face.
