" I am thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow this year as this experience presents itself as an opportunity to better grasp how communities have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. I am looking forward to working with strong-minded and determined students from all over the world on projects that have a great social impact. I believe that the Millennium Fellowship is an exceptional program that allows dynamic people to achieve their goals, therefore I am profoundly grateful to be part of such a network. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Plateforme des Initiatives Sociales et d'Entrepreneuriat
PISE is a programme seeking to tackle socio-economic problems by developing innovative ideas into initiatives and startups by students of the Sciences Po Le Havre campus. This will happen in 12 week programmes consisting of theoretical sessions where participants are taught business and social fundamentals to help them build their initiative, experiential sessions where students engage with local communities to understand the local manifestation of the problem they feel passionate about. Finally, through this process we aim to provide students with mentors ‚ practitioners ‚who will work with the students to structure their enterprises, get personalised feedback on their progress, and help implement the initiatives into real surroundings. The goal of the programme is to integrate our campus better into the Le Havre city, by making students more aware and concerned about this microcosm, and helping them to actively seek solutions to socio-economic challenges felt by the residents of the city.
