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 I have learned all about the SDGs through my sustainability classes, and now I get to work towards one in an awesome project and interact with others who are also passionate about helping make the world a better place through real action.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The “Change in Greenville County Neighborhoods: Challenges and Opportunities” project seeks to understand gentrification and displacement in Greenville County and identify where displaced residents are moving. Knowing this information will help a nonprofit organization, United Way of Greenville County, focus its services in areas where more people in need may access them. This August-November, Amelia hopes to speak with more residents about their experiences with neighborhood change so that she can help her colleagues write a final report on their findings for the United Way of Greenville County.
