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.
“The Millennium Fellowship is a truly global phenomenon that allows millennials from a plethora of nations encourage and assist one another as they aim to improve their communities and the world as a whole.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Innovation Hour project aims to allow undergraduate students a platform to propose unique solutions to local or global issues to an interested community audience on a weekly basis. Issues like refugee placement, after school programs for at-risk youth, climate change, and poor infrastructure will be tackled by undergraduates who might otherwise not have a platform to tackle these common problems.
