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 have enormous faith in the children who suffer from the consequences of systematic neglection. The opportunity to become a Millennium Fellow will sharpen my skills on what sustainable solutions look like for those who are displaced, marginalized, or vulnerable. I am excited to see the types of movements curated by a cohort of Fellows dedicated to defeat the ugliest sides of humanity with a strong force of love.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The No Lost Generation initiative aims to educate, protect, and shield the future of refugee children in conflict and post-conflict zones. The opportunity to become a Millennium Fellow would provides Juhee with the appropriate tool-kit needed to connect, preserve, and communicate within the diverse Furman community. Through connecting doers and thinkers within the Fellowship, she hopes to curate projects that will push communities to think in terms of sustainability and creativity. In practice, this looks like asking lots of really difficult design thinking questions that in turn spark radical collaboration of people from all backgrounds.
