About the Program

In 2011, the UGA Alumni Association launched the 40 Under 40 program to recognize exceptional young alumni who are achieving great success in their professional and personal endeavors. This campus-wide collaboration is supported by the Division of Development and Alumni Relations, Division of Student Affairs and all academic departments. Nominations open each spring and honorees are announced mid-summer. Then, in early fall each year, the campus community gathers for the 40 Under 40 Awards Luncheon to celebrate these individuals' leadership in business, research, the arts, philanthropy and education. If you have questions about this program, please email Julie Cheney (AB '00, MED '11) at jcheney@uga.edu.
