The Millennium Fellowship is a semester-long global program designed to help undergraduate students in their current and future social impact work. The Millennium Campus Network (MCN) was founded in 2013 and in 2018 partnered with the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI).
This year there are 1,092 Millennium Fellows from 69 campuses across 16 countries. Fellows meet on their own campuses to complete the fellowship and to advance their social impact projects. The fellows and their projects demonstrate MCN’s core values of empathy, humility, and inclusiveness.
Throughout the program, undergraduate students work on projects which will further the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have a meaningful impact on their campus fellows, local communities, and on the world more broadly. These fellows and their projects are supported by the Millennium Campus Network through a broad network of Fellows and alumni, MCN staff, and global leaders in social impact work. The fellowship offers access to webinars delivered by global leaders. The fellows also receive training in key skills in areas such as leadership, social impact work, networking, and interview skills.
Two Australian ‘campus hubs’ have been accepted into the Millennium Fellowship program this year. Western Sydney University has been accepted for the second year in a row; University of Sydney has been selected for the first time.
The fellowship officially commences on August 1, which means that this year’s fellowship has just begun. The fellowship continues through the semester and ends in December.
Congratulations and good luck to this year’s Millennium Fellows!
