Alabama A&M University is excited to announce its 19th Annual Black Tie Scholarship Gala on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.! It will be held at the Von Braun Civic Center--South Hall in Huntsville, Alabama. As a tremendous stakeholder of this community, the University requests your support by serving as a sponsor for this event.

The Black Tie Scholarship Gala is Alabama A&M University’s premiere fundraising event and is designed to support talented students who demonstrate a financial need. Of our 6,108 students, roughly 90% are in need of financial aid. Your support of this event will grant students an education and a future filled with possibilities.

Aside from supporting a very worthy cause, you can also anticipate dancing the night away at a free concert featuring Grammy Nominated R&B artist,

Therefore, we humbly request that Alabama A&M University’s 19th Annual Black Tie Scholarship Gala be included in your 2019 budget. All proceeds will be used as scholarship dollars for deserving students at Alabama A&M. If you have any questions regarding this request, please contact blacktie@aamu.edu or (256)372-8344.
