The UMD is once again looking to honor 40 of our community’s most promising young individuals of Macedonian descent.

Since 2014, the 40 Under 40 program has been an important way for UMD to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of leaders from the global Macedonian diaspora family. Past recipients have been prominent leaders in business, politics, medicine, and the arts, among other fields.

In recognizing these incredible individuals, we also acknowledge the contributions of Macedonian communities around the world. Their achievements should represent the values of hard work, dedication, and commitment that all Macedonians share. These individuals should be role models within their community and serve as an inspiration for young members of the greater Macedonian diaspora.

Who is UMD looking for?
Macedonians that have demonstrated leadership, initiative and dedication to their careers in the fields of, but not limited to: technology and innovation, business, real estate, healthcare, finance, teaching, arts, law, government, etc., and have achieved that success under the age of 40.
