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.
“Increasing access to higher education has the potential to transform the opportunities and overall lively hood of our students today, therefore I am honored to contribute to the initiative.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The YMCA Teen Achievers Program is a high school graduation program whose goal is to help their participants graduate from high school and transition to post post-secondary education. They work to achieve these goals by conducting workshops to participating students during the school day. Their goal is to raise $5,000 to help cover college visit expenses.
