Your Gift, Their Success

Help us ensure the 153 hours students spend outside the classroom each week prepare them for success and achievement when they are inside the classroom. 

From leadership programs to internships, on-campus living to Greek life, student government, and homecoming to physical and mental wellness, the LSU Division of Students Affairs team designs every experience to meet students’ needs with the tenacity of a tiger and the comforting warmth of a bowl of gumbo.  
But we can’t do it alone. Your gift helps us meet students’ immediate needs, keep them on the path to graduating, and positively affect the trajectory of their lives.

Suit Up Grant Fund

Every student deserves to feel confident in their job search, but 1 in 4 LSU students has a financial need. For these students, buying professional attire isn't always an option, but employers report a candidate's professional polish influences their opinion– that includes attire. 

That's why we launched the Suit Up Grant. 

The Suit Up Grant provides students in need with $200 awards to spend on professional attire.

Help us reach our goal of providing 50 students with grants in 2022.
