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 am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because the fellowship offers the platform for a collaborative space with people that you might not have otherwise connected with. I am driven by not only the underprivileged students of Atlanta that I see everyday, but the other change makers around me. This opportunity brings everything full circle.”

The Misinformation Mishap (TMM) is dedicated to providing students in under-served areas information and resources on options for secondary education with a focus on HBCUs. We have already traveled to areas of Atlanta and hosted sessions consisting of panels and speeches. However, we hope to do more by hosting our biggest two events yet with attendance upwards of 50 students this semester.
Alexus Echols is a second year biochemistry major at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, the same place she was born and raised. Her love for research and the sciences is only matched by her affection for the community around her. Everything she does for herself and the community is possible because of what she described as the “most loving support system in the world”, her family.
