Each semester, all LSU students have the opportunity to shop for professional attire at discounted rates during the Suit-Up with JCPenney event. Suit-Up Grants are used for shopping during this event and are awarded to select students who demonstrate financial need and an understanding of their career goals. Student grant applications are reviewed by an on-campus committee. 

Your gift directly impacts students by providing them with access to professional attire that their budget may not allow for. This access increases student confidence in their job search process and future workplace. Every $200 raised provides one student with the tools they need to feel confident in their next interview or workplace.
