Welcoming Pitt’s 2020 Millennium Fellowship Cohort

Congrats to the University of Pittsburgh’s second cohort of Millennium Fellows, focused on the Sustainable Development Goals!

In Fall 2020, the University of Pittsburgh welcomes its second cohort of Millennium Fellows. These 11 undergraduate students were selected for the Millennium Fellowship, a program that convenes, challenges, and celebrates student leadership for the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This robust global network is coordinated by United Nations Academic Impact and MCN.  Over 15,000 young leaders from over 1,400 campuses in 135 nations applied for the Class of 2019.  Only 80 campuses worldwide were selected to host the 1,458 Millennium Fellows.

Eleven (11) undergraduate students from the University of Pittsburgh were selected — and are working together in Fall 2020.
