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 I can challenge my community to participate in an issue bigger than us. We as an all women's college have a duty to protect and support women.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
My Sister's Wings aims to raise awareness about trafficked women in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area, by hosting activities and events that will allow the Spelman College community to participate within their own community. Our goal is to reach at least 20-25% (500 students) of Spelman College. We will use social media, flyers, email, and other outlets to get a large amount of the student population involved. I want our Spelman sisters to be able to understand the signs of human trafficking and want to encourage them to be activists and world changers.
