Out of 1400 campuses across 135 countries, NUST is one of the 80 nominated Cohorts for Millennium Fellowship 2020 to host 1,000+ Millennium Fellows this year. Millennium Fellowship, a joint program of United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) and Millennium Campus Network (MCN), a Boston-based global non-profit convening and training social impact leaders, aims to help young leaders find their voice and own their power for social impact on campus and in the community.
The Millennium Fellows selected from NUST are currently advocating community service projects including Break the Barriers, Fem Power,
Grow with Hope, Namood e Subah, Sahara , Uraan, Spark Career, Dream Sober, Sargodha Youth Peace, and Street School. NUST also was among the top applicants in terms of the highest number of applications received from a single campus in the Asia region.
The Millennium Fellows will attend training sessions arranged by MCN, be the part of international virtual global events, advocate for the causes/community service projects committed to SDGs localisation, and building communities. At the end of the Fellowship in November 2020, the Fellows will receive certificates of recognition from MCN and UNAI.
This is a tremendous achievement for NUST, harbouring international recognition for contribution towards SDGs localisation and societal impact, as UNAI will be engaged in publicising the Fellowship Programme through its global network.
