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 very grateful and excited to be selected as a Millennium fellow. It is a unique opportunity for me to impact the farmers in local communities and interact with students that share the same passion as mine. It has always been my dream to help people derive the best I what they do. Being born from a family that depended on farming for survival, helped me in bringing out the passion for finding a way to help maximize the precious labour that the farmers put into their farming processes into an output that will sustain them.”
