The United Nations Academic Impact/MCN Millennium Fellowship 2022 for emerging Leaders worldwide

Application Deadline: March 31st, 2022

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 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 2022 are now open and will be reviewed on a rolling basis for a limited number of Fellowships, so early applications are encouraged.  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 submitted by December 2022.  


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.


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.


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
