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’m excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I’ll have the unique opportunity to build a global network of individuals that have similar passions. I believe that there is so much value in community and learning from other people, so I’m excited to engage with everyone in the fellowship. The hope in a better future drives me to do the work I do and I feel honored to walk side by side with other individuals who have the same vision as well.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The GT Books Not Bombs STEM Workshops will be partnering with Georgia Tech’s chapter of Books Not Bombs, which currently aids in after school tutoring of refugee students at a local Atlanta high school. The project’s team plans to develop interactive workshops intended to make STEM disciplines more accessible to all students, help them make informed decisions about their future and make them more competitive when seeking acceptance to higher education. Their goals are to complete 3 workshops, partner with 3 student orgs and have 25 unique students attend the workshops. They hope to advance SDG's principle of Quality Education and UNAI’s principle of Education for All through their efforts.
