Millennium Fellowship Project: CMUNC Community
As Director of Outreach (a new position) for the annual Cornell MUN Conference, my project focuses on expanding this conference to communities that may not usually have the opportunities to learn and attend via financial aid as well as teaching programs.
In terms of financial aid, I will not only be applying to grants, I will also be partnering with the Director of Public Relations of this organization to raise money via corporate sponsors directly for providing aid to those who need it. I hope to raise at least $6,000 to support financial needs of delegations attending the Cornell MUN Conference. I will also be establishing a framework to ensure that this aid is distributed in an equitable way, and provide 1-2 merit scholarships to those who demonstrate a strong desire to support the conference’s goals in learning inclusions, diplomatic and political strengths, and the conference’s main theme (which is yet to be determined — last year’s theme was focused on the freedom of the press).
In terms of community outreach, I hope to bring in at least 3 new schools that originally did not have established MUN programs to this conference, as well as set up learning workshops for MUN and its connected skills in the community via the libraries, Girl and Boy Scouts, and after school programs, both throughout the year and at the conference itself.
