The United Nations Academic Impact and MCN proudly present the Millennium Fellowship. This program convenes, challenges, and celebrates bold student leadership advancing UN Sustainable Development Goals on campus and in communities. Millennium Fellows hone skills, take concrete action, and earn a certificate of recognition from the United Nations Academic Impact and MCN.

Fresno State undergraduates (graduating in December 2020 or Spring 2021) are invited to apply.

Here are the 17 sustainable development goals listed: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdgs

The application is open on a rolling basis through April 2020 with early applications strongly recommended (there were 7,000+ applicants from 1,209 campuses last cycle).

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. Below is the three-step process to apply, and if accepted, engage in the program. Additional details can be found in the FAQs section.

Who is eligible to apply for this program?

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.

You make a commitment to convene in-person least eight times during the Millennium Fellowship (for 2020, the program will run August-December) 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."

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.
