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 look forward to inspiring other students through our case competition, to help them shape their own solutions for our future, and to guide them along the way to making them a reality. Being a Millennium Fellow represents how this whole project reflects the UN's passion for sustainability, and I am honored to be a part of it.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Sustainable Solutions is a competition at the University of Pennsylvania that empowers Penn students and Philadelphia high-schoolers to tackle the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the local scale. Our target goal is to have at least 500 students participate in our 4 information sessions, in total. Additionally, we hope to obtain at least 1,000 signups on our listserv through our general marketing this August-November.
