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 in the power of experience, and as a Millennium Fellow, I hope to bring global issues closer to home by highlighting the experiences of others in an educating and engaging way.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: NU Donation Lab
The NU Donation Lab will be a permanent space at Northeastern in which students both learn about global issues and channel their ideas into action. Every semester, the executive board at the Lab will select a global issue to highlight through informational and fundraising events. In our first semester, we hope to accomplish the following:
Hold 4-6 informational events about the semester's trademark issue (e.g. documentary viewings, author live chats)
Identify the most pressing needs of the people affected by the trademark issue
Identify how the Northeastern community can help meet those needs
Couple each informational event with an opportunity for students to contribute material donations
Hold +1 fundraising event at which students can contribute material or monetary donations
Develop and encourage a social media campaign by which students can educate their friends and family external to Northeastern about the trademark issue
