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.
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Society for Women in STEM: A cooperation between campus and community to foster relations with women in STEM and STEM-related fields. Their goal is to have over 150 attendees at their first annual Women's Networking Event (WNE) and 7 weeks of gSTEM (their elementary school outreach to educate girls on the opportunities in science).
About the Millennium Fellow
Amelia Davidson and is a Junior Neuroscience major and Ancient Greek and Roman Studies (AGRS) minor at Furman University. Ever since she was little, she imagined a career in science (though it started with paleontology) and she knows young her would be proud of the things she is doing now. However, not nearly as many women and girls have such a cultivating environment as her own. Through this program, she hopes to provide the opportunity for girls to question and appreciate the world around them through the lens of science!
