About the 17th Annual Black Tie Scholarship Gala


The Black Tie Scholarship Gala is Alabama A&M University’s premier annual fundraising event designed to close the financial gap of students aspiring toward higher education.  This event was derived by members of the Collaborative University Business and Industry Cluster (CUBIC) in 2001 as a way to raise scholarship dollars and to build institutional awareness while bringing together students, faculty/staff and industry for a common cause.  Now in its 17th year, the Gala has raised approximately $2 million dollars since its inception and has impacted the lives of hundreds of students.
