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 2019, 67 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 805 Millennium Fellows. Millennium Fellows' Projects have positively impacted the lives of over 564,366 people worldwide this year.
To support the intended impact, the Millennium Fellowship provides student leaders with the training, connections, and recognition. See below our full 2019 Impact Report followed by our highlights from the report.

The Millennium Fellowship gave me the tools to be able to start my project as well as guide me through the process. At times we all have these ideas about social change we want to implement, but we lack the tools to get us there. The Millennium Fellowship supported my project and believed in me which gave me confidence to continue it.
