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 looking forward to joining a cohort of others who are also interested in advancing the SDGs and ensuring a future that will be desirable and sustainable.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Sustainable Solutions is a competition at the University of Pennsylvania that empowers Penn students and Philadelphia high schoolers to tackle the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the local scale. During the fellowship, they hope to inform over 13,000 students on campus about the competition, host training/information sessions to educate competitors on how to localize the SDGs, invite experts from Penn/Philadelphia to speak on the SDGs, and lay the groundwork for Sustainable Solutions to continue at Penn.
