Apply to join the Millennium Fellowship class of 2021

The Millennium Fellowship is a partnership between the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) and the Millennium Campus Network (MCN).

The Millennium Fellowship holds on your campus for a semester, and provides you with practical world class training to develop your leadership and social impact skills.

The class of 2021 will hold from August, 2021 to December, 2021.

Here’s how it works.


You submit your application that includes a project you’d like to work on as a Millennium Fellow.

Your project should be in line with at least one Sustainable Development Goal and one UNAI principle. It should also be something you can make meaningful, measurable impact on during the duration of the Fellowship (August – December).

You can apply to participate as a Millennium Fellow, or as one of two campus directors to lead the cohort on your campus.


Convene with 7 to 19 other Millennium Fellows in your cohort / on your campus to learn from one another, network and make impact.

Millennium fellows convene at least 8 times during the program.


Set goals and create a plan of action for your sessions together. Meet with other fellows on your campus to exchange best practices.


When, by the end of the Fellowship, you and other members of your cohort meet your goals and the requirements for graduation, you’ll be celebrated with in a virtual graduation ceremony…along with thousands of other fellows from across the globe.

You’ll also earn a certificate of recognition from United Nations Academic Impact and Millennium Campus Network.
