Awards to Alumni and Students
The Thomas M. Cooley Law School Alumni Association selects recipients of the Alumni Memorial Scholarship, the Distinguished Alumni Service Award, and the Distinguished Student Award.
Distinguished Alumni Service Award
Started in 2000, recipients of this award are graduates who have provided exemplary service in furtherance of the mission of the Alumni Association.
Alumni Memorial Scholarship Award
First presented Trinity Term 1989, the Fund is supported by the generous contributions of many alumni, as well as the proceeds from the annual Alumni Golf Outing. The grant represents the income from the fund, so that the Alumni Memorial Scholarship will remain a permanent source of support for students with financial need.
Distinguished Student Award
Awarded three times a year since 1980, this award seeks to honor those graduating students who have displayed high standards throughout their law school careers. Nominated students are personally interviewed and are evaluated on character, academic accomplishment, leadership, and extracurricular activities.
