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.
“I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it will allow me to further positively impact, not only my group of students at the Preparatoria Politécnica Santa Catarina, but the rest of the Monterrey community. To me, being Fellow means I get to work and promote the United Nation’s SDG's and UNAI principles, not only on my campus, but in other communities who have never heard of them all of this while providing an education to those who needed most.”

The Preparatoria Politécnica Santa Catarina is a group of university students and teachers working alongside the University of Monterrey, Santa Catarina’s government, and the Ministry of Public Education to provide young high schoolers from one of Santa Catarina’s most needed neighborhoods with a high-quality high school education.
