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 about being a Millennium Fellow because I want to collaborate with students from other countries who are advocating for educational equity and the survivors of domestic violence. Discussing these crucial issues on a global scale would provide me with an even greater sense of empathy for the immigrant families that I work with.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
English Language Classes and Mentoring for Survivors of Domestic Violence project will be implementing a new educational program that provides mentoring and English Language classes to survivors, through developing curriculum, workshops, and teaching in the classroom. The success of this project will be measured by conducting examinations of students at the beginning and end of the semester, as well as a personal reflection on their goals. The project will advance SDG #4, to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long opportunities for all and UNAI principle #3, a commitment to educational opportunity or all people regardless of gender, race, religion, or ethnicity.
