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 beyond excited to be fully immersed in a community of game changers. The UN SDGs represents an opportunity to open up global politics to a new way of thinking spearheaded by a younger generation, represented by the Millennium Fellows. This is the way that I envision lasting change to occur, and I am honored to be a part of the fellows and see it happen for myself.”
