Millennium Fellowship application is on.

Deadline for submission of application for the Millennium Fellowship program is July 15, 2018. Continue reading below….
The United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are partnering on the Millennium Fellowship. The Millennium Fellowship is a semester-long leadership development program that happens on your campus. It convenes, challenges, and celebrates student leadership for UN goals on campuses worldwide.
The program is free for accepted applicants.
What makes an outstanding Millennium Fellow:
“As Millennium Fellows, we need you to lead by example – with empathy, humility, and inclusion as guiding values. You can embrace global citizenship, building a strong global network to learn from and support each other.”
– Ban Ki-moon, 8th Secretary-General of the United Nations
Millennium Fellowship Eligibility & Requirements.
- You must be at least 18 years old, enrolled in a college or university and in good standing for the duration of the program.
- You make a commitment to convene at least four times during the Millennium Fellowship (for 2018, the program will run August-December) with your Campus Directors and other Fellows on your campus to share best practices and take collective action. If you miss sessions, this is grounds for expulsion and the forfeiture of your designation as a Millennium Fellow.
Note: We aim to accept at least eight Millennium Fellows from each Campus Hub (with two Campus Directors). Most Campus Hubs will typically have 8-20 Millennium Fellows. The Fellowship is about forming community; therefore we encourage you to share the program with other prospective Fellows on your campus and encourage them to apply as well.
