The Millennium Fellowship is looking for change agents to take part in a semester-long leadership development program on your campus to take your social impact to the next level. Accepted students will lead projects to advance the Sustainable Development Goals in their respective institution and communities while having the opportunity to communicate/collaborate with the 2,000 UN-MCN fellows from all over the world. Students will also attend a total of 8 engaging enrichment/leadership sessions which take place on their campus.
In order for the fellowship to take place and for Pace to be eligible as a “campus hub”, 8-20 students must be accepted for the fellowship (meaning you are strongly encouraged to invite your peers on your campus to apply as well). When you apply, you are asked to submit your Millennium Fellowship Project (which can be a new idea or a current project you are already working on for a class or research). Examples of past Pace projects include:
- Addressing food insecurity on campus
- Creating a human trafficking prevention toolkit
- Interviewing homeless individuals in NYC to put together a series of articles on their stories to “humanize them”
- Working with Pace’s Energy Manager to address sustainability challenges on campus
- Creating a series of mental and physical health programs for Pace students
- Be a change agent with a passion for social impact and advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals;
- Be at least 18 years old;
- Be an undergraduate enrolled in a college or university and in good standing at that academic institution for the duration of the program;
- Make a commitment to convene in-person least eight times during the Millennium Fellowship (the program runs from August-December) with your Campus Directors and other Fellows on your campus to share best practices and take collective action.
