Alumni Engagement

40 Under Forty


The Emory Alumni Association's 40 Under Forty awards program spotlights selected alumni across a variety of vocations for having made a significant impact in business, research, leadership, public service and/or philanthropic endeavors.

Emory graduates are some of the most impactful young leaders who are forging partnerships, solving problems, and serving their communities in order to create stronger communities both in their professional and personal lives. Each year, we cull through hundreds of applications to recognize those outstanding young alumni who represent the very best in achievement and service.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021

Join us in celebrating Emory's newest class of 40 Under Forty. This group represents some of the most accomplished young alumni, who continue to make waves in business, research, leadership, and philanthropic endeavors.
