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.
“To me, I think being a fellow in the Millennium Fellowship is one of the most exciting experiences I can ever have in my lifetime. The most exciting opportunity is provision for the challenge and increasing my impact and engagement in the community. Being a fellow will help me build my network in Africa and the world at large. I also hope, it will act as my platform to share my leadership experiences and also to obtain more ideas on how to improve my country and Africa at large through my leadership. As a fellow I really hope my leadership potential will be lifted to greater heights. Taking part in an activity arranged by the Millennium Campus Network in partnership with the United Nations Academic Impact is still an exciting journey I would like to take as I hope that God willing this will increase my chances to get connected to people who have made this . I want to impact lives and as well mentor many youths from financially disadvantaged background.”
