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 think that one of the most important challenges that all communities face today is sustainability. Because there is so many types of sustainability, solutions look different in each community. As a Millennium Fellow, I get to be at the forefront of sustainable development on my campus and in my city, rewarding work that fuels my aspirations. For this reason, I am excited to work with the RCE Youth Network this upcoming fall and beyond.”
