Twenty Northeastern students have been named recipients of a global fellowship program through which they and hundreds of other students worldwide will develop leadership skills while tackling projects focused on addressing society’s greatest challenges, including climate change, poverty, and education.

The 2018 Millennium Fellows were announced Wednesday. The fellowship is a semester-long leadership development program that is the result of a partnership between the Millennium Campus Network and the United Nations Academic Impact initiative.

This year’s Millennium Fellows comprise 530 students from 30 campuses across 13 countries. Fellows are leading projects that advance the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the UNAI’s principles in the students’ communities and beyond. They will meet regularly throughout the fall with their campus cohorts to network, learn from each other, and develop a range of leadership and professional skills such as grant writing, strategic planning, and managing teams through conflict.
