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. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 402 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year. Millennium Fellows' Projects have positively impacted the lives of over 393,449 people worldwide this year.
To support the intended impact, the Millennium Fellowship provides student leaders with the training, connections, and recognition.
