" The Millennium Fellowship is an incredible opportunity to engage with a diverse network of leaders who share the common goal of making a substantive impact on different social issues that people around the world face. I'm looking forward to sharing this experience with activists and change-makers who will challenge the way I approach designing and implementing effective solutions. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: College Guidance Center
College Guidance Center is a project that would develop a set of resources for students related to college guidance, including mentorship on preparing for and applying to college, financial aid, and scholarship opportunities. Specifically, Nidhi hopes to create a comprehensive guidance curriculum for all four years of high school for students, partner high school students with college students who are interested in being mentors, host virtual events for students (panels, Q&As and workshops tailored for students at specific stages of their high school career), and work high schools to create more school-wide programming that aligns with the project's broader mission.
