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 delighted to be a Millennium Fellow as I have realized that the ambiguous goal of ‘raising awareness’ was simply not enough. Hence Sustainable Solutions is one way to urge others to take small, concrete steps, which would be more feasible than encouraging huge, ambitious actions – and the accumulated results can be far greater over time.”
