40 Under Forty Awards
Southern University Alumni Federation is accepting nominations for our 2017 40 Under Forty awards.
Established in 1941, the Southern University Alumni Federation has served as the voice for alumni for 75 years. The Federation’s mission is to support the goals and objectives of the Southern University System. Consisting of more than 100,000 graduates, the Southern University Alumni Federation is actively engaged throughout the United States and the globe. Led by a history of dynamic, dedicated and capable leaders – the Federation strives to keep graduates connected to opportunities, recognize alumni accomplishments, bring awareness to issues that affect the University and above all continue the fight to preserve the University and its mission.
As a pipeline for leaders in both Business and Social enterprises, the Southern University Alumni Federation will introduce a yearly 40 Under Forty list. The 40 Under Forty list will recognize Southernites who have made significant contributions within their respective discipline. Nominees should excel in the areas of Education, Business, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Social Justice, Public Service/Politics, or Arts. It is not necessary for the 40 Under Forty nominee to be the owner, founder or leader of a business or organization.
40 Under Forty will celebrate the best and brightest young professional Southern University alums across the nation. To be considered for the 40 Under Forty list, a nominee must not have reached their 40th birthday before January 1 of the list’s year (2017).
Each 40 Under Forty class will be profiled in the Spring issue and highlighted in the Winter issue of The Southernite Magazine and celebrated at the Honoree Gala held in March 2018 - the details of which will be provided at a later date.
All nominations must be submitted online no later than 12 a.m. Friday, December 15th with no exception. Please take the nomination process seriously. Make sure to personalize your submission paying particular attention to the nominee’s qualifications.
