Northeastern students earn fellowships to advance UN sustainable development goals
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.
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.
