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 passionate about my work because sexual violence is preventable and as a survivor, I know how important it is to prevent it. I am proud to be a Millennium Fellow because I am excited to convene with others in my community to work together to have a greater social impact.”
