National Alumni Association to Honor Young Alumni with New Award

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama National Alumni Association is accepting nominations for the inaugural 18 Under 31 Young Alumni Awards. The awards honor outstanding young graduates who have made significant contributions to their industry, field or community.

“The University of Alabama has consistently attracted the best and brightest students for many years,” said Associate Vice President and Director of Alumni Affairs Calvin Brown. “The result has been an extraordinary group of graduates making their mark on their communities, our state and the entire country. Our 18 Under 31 initiative is designed to celebrate these young alumni for all they have accomplished since graduation.”

UA alumni under the age of 31 as of Jan. 20, 2023, who graduated with either an undergraduate or graduate degree and are active members of the National Alumni Association are eligible for the award. Nominees should uphold the values of the Capstone Creed and have a proven dedication to the University. A complete list of criteria for the award can be found on the 18 Under 31 website.

Nominations may be submitted through Oct. 14. Recipients will be announced later this year and will be recognized at the 18 Under 31 Young Alumni Awards ceremony on Jan. 20.
