Family members (parents, siblings, spouses, cousins, etc.), friends, classmates, colleagues, mentors, parishioners ... you! We accept nominations for alumnae candidates under the age of 35 who have at least three years of professional experience.
Absolutely not! Alumnae have been honored for the work they’re doing in their “regular” job because they keep their students/patients/clients/colleagues central to the work. Alumnae who have a “regular” job but spend countless hours volunteering at an animal shelter, mentoring young women, championing efforts to help those in need or being a leader in their parish, have been recognized. We have also honored mothers who dedicate themselves not only to their families, but to their professions and communities at large. There is no limit to the accomplishments of our amazing alumnae.
It’s okay! Don’t let this step deter you from nominating someone or yourself! If you are not able to provide these materials, find a way to collect this information (accomplishments, experiences, etc.) and write a reason as to why you’re not able to share it in the specific format requested. Sometimes, nominators keep the nomination a secret so it can be difficult to obtain the required information. We don’t want this to stop you from sharing why your or this alumna is worthy of being celebrated and recognized!
Nominations must be submitted electronically here. Any documents that can’t be uploaded on the online nomination form can be sent directly to Alumnae Director Allison Busser ’04 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "25 Under 35" in the subject line.
Our past nominees have been from all walks of life and professions from business to entrepreneurs to non-profit. They teach, heal, entertain, serve in the military, design, create, build, protect and advocate.
They live all over the country. They travel around the block, across the nation, around the world.
It matters because our alumnae make the world a better place.
