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.
“Excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I have the opportunity to meet others who share the same passion as I do. This will also be a chance for me to learn more about myself and gain new skillsets that I never would get to learn or practice in a university class setting.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Plan-It Earth project is an annual ideathon at Georgetown University that brings together students, experts, and practitioners in environmental sustainability to generate solutions to critical conservation challenges. It promotes numerous UN Sustainable Development Goals including #11: sustainable cities and communities. This fall, the project’s team hopes to increase awareness of Plan-It Earth at Georgetown and in the DMV area, as well as acquire sufficient funds to make this event a success!
