Our Global Impact
MCN launched the Millennium Fellowship in 2013 to convene, challenge, and celebrate student leadership for social impact. Beginning in 2018, MCN and United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) partnered to present the Millennium Fellowship, creating a robust global network of undergraduate leaders advancing UN goals.
Student leaders worldwide were invited to join an extraordinary community of young leaders advancing the Sustainable Development Goals in their respective communities. In 2021, 136 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 2,000+ Millennium Fellows. Millennium Fellows' Projects have positively impacted the lives of over 1.6 million people worldwide in 2021.
To support the intended impact, the Millennium Fellowship provides student leaders with the training, connections, and recognition. See below our full 2020 Impact Report followed by our highlights from the report.

Lebanese American University, Lebanon
Through the Millennium Fellowship, my project has become more goal-oriented and feasible. I learned that to achieve my goal, I should focus on SDG # 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. The Fellowship pushed me beyond my limits and made me delve deeper into the SDG and explore its social and humanitarian aspects.
Millennium Fellowship helped translate my idea into action. For a long time, I had wanted to contribute positively in my community and improve the lives of those around me. The millennium fellowship not only provided me a platform to do that but also gave me the know-how, skills and networks to be able to realize this.
