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. This grant is a partnership among the LSU Olinde Career Center and JCPenney.



  • Currently enrolled part time & full-time student who should be in good standing with the university (NOT be on academic probation or disciplinary probation)
