The United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are partnering with the Millennium Fellowship. The Millennium Fellowship convenes, challenges, and celebrates student leadership for UN goals on campuses worldwide. The program is free for accepted applicants. Applications for the Class of 2021 will open in Fall 2020; and will be reviewed on a rolling basis for a limited number of Fellowships, so early applications are encouraged. Moreover, the program will run on campuses worldwide from August to November where cohorts of 8-20 Millennium Fellows have been selected. Feedback and stories of student impact will be available by December 2021.
