United Nations (UN) Millennium Fellowship

About the Millennium Fellowship

Are you seeking to develop and strengthen your leadership skills through global community social impact? The Millennium Fellowship is a semester-long leadership development program for undergraduate students to improve partnership building and community impact skills. This is an extraordinary movement of social impact student leaders committed to making the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and principles reality by 2030. UC Davis Global Affairs has been facilitating engagement with the SDGs through programmatic initiatives and partnerships.

The Millennium Fellowship takes place on select University campuses in various parts of the world. Millennium Fellows convene to learn from and challenge each other. The positive results of this fellowship have been lasting. Program survey data indicates that about 75% of alumni follow a professional path in social impact careers.

UC Davis has acquired the status of a Millennium Fellowship Campus Hub, with 18 Fellows that are part of the 2022 Class, recognized as some of the most promising young leaders in the world.
