30 Under 30 Logo

30 Under 30 is a celebration of accomplished young Arab Americans.

The program spotlights professionals in all fields, including but not-limited to: education, law, public service/politics, non-profit, business, entrepreneurs, engineers, medical professionals, artists, entertainers, writers, and media representatives.

The process of selecting this year’s 30 Under 30 begins with nominations. We urge you to be thorough because 30 Under 30 is a self applicant-driven process; the background material submitted on a given individual is the primary source of information to be weighed by the judges. The Arab America Foundation will keep confidential all information submitted.

All candidates should be under the age of 30 and over the age of 20, who excel in their industry and are engaged in promoting their heritage and culture to empower their communities and make a difference. The competition is open to all professionals who live and/or work in the United States and from Arab descent.
