Each selected campus hub will typically have 8-20 Millennium Fellows (meaning you are strongly encourage to invite your colleagues and classmates on your campus to apply as well).
When you apply, you are asked to submit your Millennium Fellowship Project. Whatever your project is, it must be time-bound – something you can make a meaningful, measurable impact on during the Millennium Fellowship (August-November) and it must advance at least one Sustainable Development Goal and one UNAI principle. For some examples, it could be (but is not limited to):
- leading your campus organization (for example, a chapter of AIESEC, ENACTUS, or UNICEF) that advances UN goals.
- student journalism – writing a series on the Sustainable Development Goals for your campus newspaper.
- running a social enterprise.
- innovative research that concretely advances UN goals.
- proposing a collective action as a Project – a campus-wide and/or community-wide initiative that advances UN goals.
- Convene, Challenge, and Celebrate
A minimum of 8 convenings between August and November are conven by the Millenium Fellows on their respective campuses.
During these sessions, Campus Directors will lead you through the MCN Action Toolkit – an adaptive curriculum to help you reflect on core values, hone skills, and take informed action for UN goals.
As a campus hub, you will get exposed to a variety of elements during the Fellowship sessions as part of the MCN Action Toolkit:
- cultivating core values (empathy, humility, inclusion).
- honing hard skills (how to write a budget, and create SMART goals).
- honing soft skills (team management, pitching your Project).
- peer-to-peer feedback – sharing best practices to help each other overcome obstacles to your Project and exploring further opportunities for collaboration.
- You will take on the challenge – of engaging in peer-to-peer feedback to support the Projects of your peers as you lead your own.
- As a campus hub, you may also choose to take on a collective action – for example, working with your administration to update a campus sustainability plan.
- If you have been an active Millennium Fellow and completed your Project, the MCN and UNAI will celebrate your work: you will earn a certificate recognizing the successful completion of your Millennium Fellowship Project from United Nations Academic Impact and MCN.
