ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
"Becoming a Millennium Fellow is so exciting because I have the opportunity to share the importance of advancing the status of women around the world by first understanding the power we hold individually and then globally uniting as sisters. Through Letters of the Unapologetic Sisters (L.O.T.U.S.) which emphasizes the importance of knowledge, confidence, humility, and love, we begin to approach the forefront of human rights by forming a sisterhood in the face of adversity. Change starts from within. What sets the organization apart is not its focus on academic or financial stability alone, but its focus on mental and emotional well-being before anything else. We must build up ourselves, and we must build up our sisters in order to advance the social, political, and economic status of women."
Millennium Fellowship Project
Letters of the Unapologetic Sisters (L.O.T.U.S.), focuses on improving the social, economic, and political status of women in the Greater Atlanta region, as well as raising awareness for global women's issues. Our major goals are to impact both the lives of women in the Greater Atlanta Region and in developing countries. We will be raising funds in support of increasing the number of girls attending school in developing countries and ending violence against women. Within Atlanta, we will increase resources and knowledge for economic empowerment, higher education, and health and wellness for girls and women of all backgrounds.
