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 excited to participate in the program to be able to develop my project internationally, and to be able to reach more people around the world.
What I do, I do with passion and motivation to improve the quality of life of people.
My phrase: "That my success is not the money, but, the welfare and quality of life of the people."
