The Millennium Fellowship for Undergraduate Student Leaders, presented by the United Nations Academic Impact and Millennium Campus Network, is a program designed to nurture emerging leaders.

Millennium Fellowship

The program, known as the Millennium Palace Shop, spans a semester and takes place on campus. It’s supported by MNC and the United Nations Academic Impact, with the aim of elevating leadership among students.

This initiative brings students together, challenges them, and acknowledges their courageous leadership in pursuing sustainable development goals within their campuses and local communities.

What Is Millennium Fellowship?

Millennium Fellows are university freshmen who have demonstrated leadership in projects that advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within their local communities.

They participate in a semester-long leadership development program to enhance their skills in student organizing, partnership building, and community impact.


Benefits of the Fellowship

The Fellowship offers various benefits, including:

1. Certificate of appreciation from Millennium Campus Network and United Nations Academic Impact.

2. Valuable leadership experience.

3. Access to a global network of leaders.

4. Knowledge of community-based social change.

5. Instruction and coaching.

6. Participation in a global community network with over 7,000 peers from 300+ universities across 50+ countries.

Eligibility Criteria for Millennium Fellowship

To be eligible for the Millennium Fellowship, candidates must be undergraduate students in good academic standing.

They should be at least 18 years old at the time of application. Participants must commit to meeting in person with Campus Directors and Fellows at least eight times during the program, which runs from August to November 2022.

Additionally, they should be working on or planning to work on a project that promotes at least one Sustainable Development Goal during the program’s duration.

Application Procedure for Millennium Fellowship Programme

Each chosen campus center typically hosts 8–20 Millennium Fellows, so applicants are encouraged to motivate their peers and classmates to apply as well.

The project should also be time-bound, and achievable during the Millennium Fellowship period (August to November).
