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.
“Life becomes interesting when one's life becomes indispensable to build other people's lives.
That is the reason why I am excited about this project for I know that my life is now becoming interesting.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Education for all project aims to raise awareness about tertiary education opportunities to Congolese students in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by providing necessary information that can allow them to be eligible and grab the opportunities available to them. Batusua had already initiated a project in her high school in August and six students showed up and were interested in the program. She wishes to continue working on the project so she can reach the quota she has set of 20 students fully determined and prepared to embrace tertiary education and excel, during the period of August -November, in order for her to measure success of the project.
