ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because when I see what other Fellows are doing to change their little corner of the world, I am proud to be named amongst and be part of these leaders of change.
I have a heart that yearns to see others around me grow to realise their potential, so when I go down to the village and see these young hopefuls, I am satisfied and reassured that I am contributing to the growth of the future.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Chinnan Education Trust
The Chinnan Education Trust seeks to improve the quality of Secondary School Students in the village of Abwor Dyis, Pankshin Local Government, Plateau State. Through this project, I engage undergraduates who go to the village to conduct tutorials, mock examinations and career fest for the students in the Secondary Schools. The tutorials and mock examinations aid the students to be prepared for their final year examinations (as the mock examination is of equal standard with the final examinations) while the career fest aids them to determine what appropriate profession would suit them should they decide and with the opportunity further their studies beyond the Secondary School. The project also seeks to support exceptional students with either full time scholarship or partial scholarship to the University of their choice. The project was founded by Dr. Chinnan Maclean Dikwal.
