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.
"It is an amazing feeling to know you can help make change in the world, it's even a better feeling knowing that you can make change with a global like minded team!
To be a Millennium Fellow is more than doing our small part to our local region, it is to be a part of a movement... showcasing exactly what youth can do if given the opportunity to succeed! "
