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 excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it looks like an outstanding honor to be able to experience it. The work I have done from high school to now is the reason why I want to make a difference in the world. I saw friends and people I didn't even know to struggle for a basic need to live, food. It started there with Project MiGHT and from there creating my own FFA chapter takes helping the community to a whole new level.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Giving Back to the Community - Connecting fellow college students to work together and give back to the community. The plan is to have at least 1 service day at our chapter's partner, Turn Back Time. To have the kids that come to the nature camp to be able to connect with fellow college students and work together to create a difference. Melissa would like to have at least 15 college students be able to attend the fall service day.
