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.
“Of course, it’s simply a delight to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship and take in all it offers. Yet, the real thrill comes from learning from my ambitious and talented peers that the Fellowship brings together. I cannot wait to be part of this experience: to discuss and debate with all my diverse and eager peers.”

The pilot run for the initiative, to be held either the weekend preceding or following Halloween 2018, will aim to serve several hundred students, helping to defuse any unsafe situations and medically assist whenever possible. By working towards a safer community in which students of both genders feel secure and at ease this initiative is working towards gender equality and sustainable communities in the march to fulfill the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
