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.
“Being a Millennium Fellow allows me to get connected with inspiring and motivating individuals, who work together to create an impact in the world. I believe education is the basic right for all and everyone should have equal access to the resources. It is the foundation for an individual's personal growth and the country's overall development.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Future Project
The Future Project aims to provide basic amenities to school children from the public schools of Chennai. We have completed the first pilot phase of the project where we conducted collection drives in 3 schools in Chennai and the collected waste paper was used to make over 1600 notebooks distributed to over 500 students. We plan to expand the project to include more amenities like bags, stationery, table as a part of this project and to reach more students as we move along. Our next immediate aim is to impact more than 3000 young lives in and around Chennai by supporting their learning endeavors. Learn more about the initiative here.
