YAC '10 Under Ten' Awards

The Young Alumni Chapter established the '10 Under Ten' awards in 2018 to recognize and spotlight UNC Charlotte alumni who have graduated within the past ten years. Recipients are chosen based on exemplary performance in their professional career and involvement in volunteerism and philanthropy in order to create an impact in their local communities.
The deadline to nominate yourself or a College of Engineering alumnus/a for the YAC '10 Under Ten' award is Monday, September 6. To nominate an alum, fill out this form. It is recommended that you write a letter of support for this person and highlight (with details and examples) how he/she fits the criteria and is an exemplary representative of the University/College. You can also include the person's updated resume/CV along with the letter.


In 2020, three College of Engineering alumni were selected to receive the  YAC '10 Under Ten' awards!
