Apply to be a Millennium Fellow to become a leader in your community!

The United Nations Academic Impact and Millenium Campus Network proudly present the Millennium Fellowship - a semester-long leadership development programme on your campus to take your social impact to the next level. Access to world-class training, connections, and recognition is just an application away. Priority application deadline: February 28th.

This programme convenes, challenges, and celebrates bold student leadership advancing the Sustainable Development Goals on campus and in communities.  As a Millennium Fellow, you will hone skills, take concrete action, and earn a certificate of recognition from United Nations Academic Impact and MCN.  There is no cost for selected students and campuses.

The application is open to undergraduate students. Student leaders who are making positive impact in community and advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the principles of UNAI are encouraged to apply. Between admission in August and conclusion of the programme in December 2019 cohorts of Millennium Fellows will convene locally on their respective campuses at least monthly to engage in the leadership development programme. Fellows will be challenged by Campus Directors to share best practices and take collective action on one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

 

 

Together, MCN and UNAI are catalyzing a new generation of leaders committed to strengthening communities and advancing UN goals. Through this partnership, MCN will ensure that you are aware of the ten UNAI principles, the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals, and align your work with these objectives. UNAI will be engaged in publicizing this partnership and program through its global network.

To apply, it is strongly recommended that you fill out this interest form ahead of the priority deadline on 28 February 2019.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis up until 20 May 2019.
