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 doing this project because I am passionate about health education and love helping others. As a fellow, I know that I will be surrounded by a group of driven, passionate fellows that will help me learn new ways to support my community and grow my leadership skills and social impact experience.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Hallways to Health project aims to bring health education lessons into elementary schools. They are quick, interactive lessons that kids can do while eating lunch in the cafeteria or passing through the hallways on the way to class. With this project, Sean hopes to show children how to live a healthy life through increased health education and awareness.
