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 delighted to be a Millennium Fellow as this will afford me the unique opportunity to foster dialogue and build a strong global network with other like-minded peers and extra-ordinary leaders who are passionate about creating sustainable social change.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Bright Initiative is a social impact project committed to creating opportunity for every interested individual to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for the pursuit of higher education. The initiative will help mentor and support high school students as they develop into effective leaders capable of succeeding in diverse, multicultural and challenging university environments. My project will impact 300 senior high school students through organizing four school seminar series and two leadership weekend retreat programs. My work will help advance the the Sustainable Development Goal four (SDG 4) and the United Nations Academic Impact principle five (UNAI 5).
