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’m deeply honored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because when you have a dream of your own that you can't achieve without the help of a lot of people, you'll need leadership skills to get them with you. MCN gives me an opportunity to make a greater impact under the sustainable development goals, and form a global network with like-minded peers and extraordinary leaders.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Cyber Security Club aims to advance SDG 5 on gender equality and the UNAI principle of capacity-building in higher education systems. Women are under-represented in the global cyber security workforce. The Cyber Security Club at Effat University will provide students who are passionate about cyber security with the requisite education, expansion of knowledge and skills, and encouragement to exchange knowledge and help raise awareness in the community – while introducing more women to the field.
