Suit Up Grant


Every job seeker should have the opportunity to feel confident making their first impression on a potential employer. One of the necessary tools for navigating career experiences and a job search is professional attire options for interviews and networking. 

We recognize that access to a professional wardrobe is not always possible for students financially.

The Suit Up Grant provides selected students with $200 to use toward professional attire during the Suit Up with JCPenney event in the spring semester. This grant is a partnership among the LSU Olinde Career Center, LSU Student Government and JCPenney.



  • In good standing with the university (not on academic or disciplinary probation).
  • May be enrolled part time or full time for Spring 2021.

Application Process

  • Application opens: November 10, 2020
  • Deadline to apply: December 14, 2020
  • Selections will be notified by email January 25, 2021


Apply for the Suit Up Grant by December 14, 2020
