Young Pro. of the Month Nominations & Annual Certificate of Excellence


Philo4Thought celebrates the outstanding contributions of dedicated young professionals who strive to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Monthly recommendations are mailed to to recognize the Courage, Character & Commitment to Service of an active member in the Hellenic Community either in the US or Abroad.


At the conclusion of the year all those selected to be featured on our webpage are reviewed for consideration as recipients of our annual Certificate of Excellence, which is issued in collaboration with the New York State Assembly. The Award is indicative of the honoree's good character, determination to succeed, ability to manage his/her time and responsibilities, and commitment to lead and inspire others,


To be considered for the Certificate of Excellence, the nominee's profile should be completed prior to January 1st

of the year in which the award will be issued. The following should be submitted to

  • A letter of recommendation from the person nominating the young professional.

  • A completed interview questionnaire leading to the creation of an online Young Professional of the Month (YPM) profile on Philo4Thought's Peer Mentors & Ambassadors page. 

Nominations ​are reviewed on an annual basis (January 15th-February 15th). The selected YPM's application packet is then submitted to the New York State Assembly along with a letter from the Chair of Philo4Thought's Scholarship Review Committee for final review and processing. The Certificate is presented at Philo4Thought's annual spring symposium (May/June -- see our Events Page for details).
