The Millennium Fellowship Class of 2023 is an exclusive program that brings together over 4,000 university undergraduates from across the globe, all selected for their leadership on sustainable development-related projects. These students are united by their commitment to advancing the SDGs in their respective communities, and as Millennium Fellows, they will undergo a semester-long leadership development program designed to enhance their skills in student organizing, partnership building, and community impact.

Georgia Tech's representation in the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2023 is a testament to the institute's commitment to fostering socially responsible leaders and driving positive change. The 22 Georgia Tech Millennium Fellows will be actively engaged in projects that align with various SDGs, showcasing the institute's dedication to addressing critical global challenges.

The projects undertaken by these students encompass a wide range of initiatives, from promoting inclusive and equitable education to addressing climate justice and using technology to drive community impact. For instance, Georgia Tech's Millennium Fellows are planning an innovative project to educate students about their data choices and privacy policies, aligning with SDG 16, Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions. This initiative exemplifies the commitment of Georgia Tech students to empower their peers with the knowledge needed to navigate the digital world responsibly.

My sincerest congratulations to the distinguished 2023 Millennium Fellows at Georgia Tech," said Ángel Cabrera, President of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
