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.
“As a Math-Economics major, I have seen firsthand the impacts my economics classes have had on my worldview and understanding of inequality. I'm so excited to give the same opportunity to students all over our campus in a variety of majors. As a college student, it is very easy to forget that outside of our little bubble of school, there is a world full of poverty, inequity, and discrimination - I think the UN Millennium Fellowship is an incredible way to address significant issues and deepen thinking on college campuses. College students are individuals who will be impacting the world and hopefully solving the many of the problems we examine, so the more students we are able to engage with our projects, the better off our society will be.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The “Engaging Students on Economic Initiatives” project will focus on working with the Furman Economic Society to promote membership in the society as well encourage attendance of campus-wide events relating to economics. Through economics, Rosemary hopes to engage students on bigger conversations and recognize the implications of economic policies on a worldwide scale. This project’s goal is to increase membership in the Furman Economic Society and increase attendance of their events and other events on Furman's campus.
