40 Under 40

July 20, 2016

Drexel Magazine is soliciting nominations for outstanding alumni for its next annual 40 Under 40 edition, to be published February 2017. In previous years, profiled alumni have included an Olympic athlete, an Oscar winner, scientists, startup leaders and inspiring individuals. The College of Nursing and Health Professions has impressive graduates.  You know who they are and so we look to you to nominate our alumni so that we can share their stories more broadly.

Nominations are being sought through September 2 and can be submitted online. Alumni are also welcome to self-nominate.

ELIGIBILITY: Nominees must be 39 years or younger as of March 1, 2017, and they must have received a degree from Drexel University. 

REQUIREMENTS: Applications must include the nominee’s age, Drexel degree and a high-resolution image of the nominee, plus a short essay on why the person deserves to be honored. Nominees will be evaluated based on their personal and professional achievements, and editors are especially interested in candidates whose lives or work have had social impact.

DEADLINE: Submit your nomination online by September 2.

QUESTIONS: Email Sonja Sherwood at or call 215.571.4104.
