The United Nations Academic Impact/MCN Millennium Fellowship 2023
Details: The Millennium Fellowship is a semester-long leadership development program that happens on your campus. The United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are here to elevate your leadership. The program will run on campuses worldwide from August to November where cohorts of 8-20 Millennium Fellows have been selected.
- You must be at least 18 years old, an undergraduate enrolled in a college or university, and in good standing at that academic institution for the duration of the program.
- The Millennium Fellowship program is open for undergraduate students only. Graduate students (i.e. student pursuing a Masters, PhD degree) are not eligible.
- You make a commitment to convene in-person least eight times during the Millennium Fellowship (for 2022 the program will run August 2023 – November 2023) with your Campus Directors and other Fellows on your campus to share best practices and take collective action.
- Students have to meet on-campus, in-person for the Fellowship sessions. If you miss sessions, this is grounds for expulsion and the forfeiture of your designation as a Millennium Fellow. Campus Directors have additional responsibilities as noted in FAQs section on “Campus Director Applicants.”
Convene: As part of a cohort of 8-20+ Millennium Fellows on your campus, convene to learn from and challenge each other. Millennium Fellows convene at least 8 times during the program.
Challenge: Develop a plan of action for your sessions together. Meet to exchange best practices. And you could think bigger: organizing a campus-wide sustainability initiative or more.
Celebrate: When your Fellowship Campus meets the goals you made for yourselves and completed the Fellowship graduation requirements, you will earn a certificate of recognition from United Nations Academic Impact and Millennium Campus Network.
