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 excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I love implementing change in my community. I feel that this opportunity will give me a platform to share my passion for raising awareness about mental health. I am so passionate about mental health because I have experienced first-hand the struggles and stigma associated with any such mental health disease. I hope that by having this opportunity I can help change other members in the Greek community and beyond. This is just one small step in my ultimate goal.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Sisters for Mental Health Awareness project is designed to raise awareness about mental health and illness through a Greek life setting, such as chapter meetings. The meetings will focus on bringing up topics about mental health as well as encouraging members to be open about their experiences. Through surveys, Madison hopes to see progress in how the members feel comfortable discussing mental health
