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 am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it provides an opportunity for me to meet and network with innovative individuals who are working on various projects and I can get to learn from them. Being a Millennium Fellow also gives me a rare distinction, which makes collaborative efforts to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals with corporate bodies less challenging, and ultimately making it possible to impact on the society.”
