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.
“One of the big reasons I decided to apply to the Millennium Fellowship was the opportunity to meet and learn from other like-minded people. I want to see the kind of projects that people around the world are working on. I want to hear from them why they’re motivated to do the things that they do. From inspiration to new perspective this level of networking and support feels game changing. And I love that.”

This coming semester I will be taking a look at a significant problem in the local Orlando area: the availability of microcredit for the communities of migrant workers in the city. I will be looking at how Rollins College could theoretically invest parts of its large endowment into a program in the veins of Grameen Bank that would be able to help the local community. By the end of November, I would like this idea to be something that is present not only with Rollins administration but also the student body.
