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 very thrilled to be presented with the opportunity to work with other individuals who have the same enthusiasm to tackle the current global issues. I look forward to connecting with others who desire to making the world a better one.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
MEDLIFE Concordia seeks to mitigate poverty in marginalized rural areas and ensure global sustainability and human rights by providing citizens with the appropriate medicinal, educational, and developmental care. For the duration of the Fellowship, the organization would like to carry out a new initiative which seeks to support children with mental disabilities. The team has a set goal of raising $5000 which will be donated to a local organization of our choice such as Bell Let's Talk, a NPO, which is Canada's largest initiative dedicated to de-stigmatize mental health. Throughout the span of these four months, they will carry out at least eight fundraising events, with at least two designated at a larger scale. These events will help measure their progress in successfully reaching our goal.
About the Millennium Fellow
Ever since he was a young boy growing up in a small city in Ontario, Canada, Damien always had the enthusiasm to help those that were in need. Having experienced a difficult childhood himself, the seed of desire to help others struggling with difficulties was planted. Throughout the years the seed has grown to become an important component of who he is. Moving to a big city for his undergraduate studies presented him with greater opportunities to pursue his childhood aspiration. One of these being a chance to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship, uniting with other student leaders to pursue improvements in his community. Damien is thrilled to be a leader with other Millennium Fellows to play a major role in helping his community.
