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 am absolutely psyched to collaborate with like-minded student leaders on an issue that we all accept as a common responsibility. I am looking forward to discovering the means with which we can unite the world to commit to the journey of creating a sustainable future.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The ESG Investments in the Developing World project seeks to identify investment opportunities for institutional investors to provide the necessary equity in developing nations through an analysis of fixed income and equity markets. The goal is to unlock the capital needed to foster sustainability. To identify such opportunities, Kenneth will align a firm's targeted SDGs with their ESG framework, mission statement, and core values. He anticipates a slowdown in the market in the coming years as we approach the late stage of this economic cycle, so he hopes to maintain net positive inflows within the ESG portfolio strategy.
Kenneth Reyes is a rising senior at Georgetown University majoring in Finance and Marketing. He was born in the Philippines but grew up on the sunny California coast. At Georgetown, he has been involved with the Sustainable Oceans Alliance, a non-profit that seeks to unite millennials with industry professionals, and he has conducted research on ESG through a research fellowship. Through ESG, he has found a way to connect his love for the environment with his entrepreneurial spirit.
