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 think it's a great opportunity to learn, from other people- to open up your mind. I'm excited because I'm about to get out of my comfort zone, which feels great.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Jóvenes Altruistas Pensando en México (JÄLPEM) Project is an association of university students that provides integral assistance to vulnerable communities through multidisciplinary brigades. Their goal is to provide integral medical care (as well as legal, dental, nutritional, psychological and educational) to vulnerable communities who do not have access to them. They aim to reach as much communities as possible with every brigade, and they attempt to do so by facilitating buses to surrounding communities so that they can be transferred to their location and can be helped. Learn more about JÄLPEM by visiting their Facebook and Instagram account.
