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.
“The Millennium Fellowship offers an incubator-like setting for spurring real change, with fellow students as the motivators. I am thrilled to be working alongside peers with similar ambitions who can inspire me and whom I can watch develop their projects on different passions than my own.”

This program is rapidly expanding and hopes to welcome 100 students in the fall semester to their classrooms. Young Diplomats works to advance the SDG of quality education by giving public school students access to multilingual education and shaping them to further the UNAI principle of Global Citizenship.
