Alden J. "Butch" Carpenter Memorial Scholarship Gala

presented by Black Law Students Association

Masks and proof of vaccine OR a negative COVID-19 test are REQUIRED. Be sure to read about the event policies before you complete your purchase. Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the region, the University of Michigan will require a proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative-test protocol for indoor events. All guests and working personnel ages 12 and older will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid test taken within 72 hours of the event. Face masks continue to be required and must be worn during all events.

The gala celebrates the legacy of Alden J. “Butch” Carpenter who entered the University of Michigan Law School in 1977 with a passionate goal in mind and heart. He desired to become an advocate for the urban community by using his professional skills in business and law for its benefit and edification. His untimely passing on February 2, 1978 left the entire University community stunned and deeply saddened. Recognizing the importance of Butch’s chosen life work, the BLSA membership voted unanimously to honor his memory and vision by establishing the Alden J. “Butch” Carpenter Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year, the Fund awards scholarships to three outstanding first-year BLSA members who have demonstrated commitment to community development. Last year, the Fund awarded a total of $60,000 in scholarships. In addition to supporting current BLSA students, this event will be a great way to interact with alumni and prospective students. We hope to see you there!
