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’ve always been a person who believes that we should strive to make a difference by helping others. If it wasn’t for Becker, I would not have known how much of an impact I can make when I volunteer or work on projects to help solve a social issue. I hope my time in this fellowship will open up opportunities to assist me in alleviating food insecurity among college students on campus.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Food Pantry to alleviate food insecurity is a project that will help college students battle the struggle of obtaining fresh nutritious food right on campus. A food pantry that will be stocked with grab and go foods at no additional cost will be created.
About the Millennium Fellow
Alissa became a member and worked with former millennium fellows, Racquel Knight, Michelle Brajevich and Amelia Karayianis on We Are Global at Becker College, which won the Audience Vote for the 2015-2016 Millennium Fellowship. She displayed her leadership qualities very diligently and later became the Vice President of We Are Global. At Becker College, she assists on local service projects throughout the Worcester, Ma area. She also holds many leadership roles, including New Student Orientation Leader and was part of the Campus Activities Executive Board at Becker. It has always been a struggle to find adequate food on campus for college students, which is why she was inspired to create a food pantry on her college campus. She is currently working towards her BA in Psychology while working towards getting her MA in Mental Health Counseling at Becker College.
