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 highly excited to be part of a network of purpose driven minds aimed at creating positive impact which is consistent with the core values of The Math House. My experiences as a teacher and a student has always left me wondering what our education system is offering us without the inclusion of technology. How do we compete with the outside world? In my quest to bridge the gap, students need to be technology inclined in order to prepare them to fit in this era of technological dominance. Students will be able to identify problems as opportunities after their encounter with The Math House.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Math House is an initiative aimed at introducing the use of technology in the education system. It introduces students to softwares which will help them study and apply what they learn to solve real life problems. By November, they hope to reach out to 3 schools and attaining at least 50 students on the project.
