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 love what I study, and I have seen how much learning how to do the things I do has helped me personally. My dream is that I'd be able to empower others with that same chance - especially those who never would have had the chance otherwise - both now with Millennium and throughout my career.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

Georgia Tech’s chapter of Books Not Bombs aids in after school tutoring of refugee students at a local Atlanta high school. The project’s team plans to develop interactive workshops intended to make STEM disciplines more accessible to all students, help them make informed decisions about their future, and make them more competitive when seeking acceptance to higher education.

About the Millennium Fellow

Spencer Alliston is a fourth-year mechanical engineering student at Georgia Tech. He loves what he studies (his love for Thermodynamics can be pretty off-putting) and he hopes to be a professor one day. He loves coffee and the outdoors, especially when they're together. He lived in Bulgaria one summer, and his biggest dream is to travel Southeast Asia by motorcycle. He is super excited to get to work with Millennium Fellows on their project working with student refugees in Clarkston, GA
