" As a first-generation and low-income student myself, I'm ecstatic to begin laying out the framework for our organization to provide a platform for disadvantaged students to elevate themselves in the college application process to provide more equal opportunities. This project has many positive implications for the FGLI community and I can't wait to take it to the next level. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Access
The international non-profit aims to widen access to elite universities, like Ivy Leagues, through their global peer-to-peer mentor network which works in tandem with a technological journey model, effectively guiding the student through the entire application process. Our mentors are current students at the world's top universities, who want to make their campuses more diverse by mentoring applicants from underrepresented backgrounds. We work directly with university admissions teams and talent programs to create cost-efficient, high-impact initiatives that aid students in the journey to apply for top universities.
