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 be a Millennium Fellow because the organization leads by example. I have a privilege to demonstrate to the world what can happen when people from diverse backgrounds come together to change the world. International game changers.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Jarvis Diabetes Awareness Campaign uses Diabetes Education as a building-block to healthier communities by raising consciousness to prevent chronic disease and ensure predisposed demographic groups know the risk factors and warning signs. Working together in the community enables timely diagnoses and access to professional care by paying closer attention to prevention and consistently making small behavioral changes that have a big impact, like more nutritious food choices or glycemic trade-offs for junk food. Millennium Fellows at Jarvis Christian College hope to accomplish the measurable goal of reaching 1,000 to 2,000 East Texas youth ages 15 to 22.
