The Suit Up – Lead On initiative is based on the Neeley Promise: The Neeley School of Business unleashes human potential with leadership at the core and innovation in our spirit.

Thanks to the generosity of the Neeley Board of Advisors, this initiative provides one-on-one personal branding consultations and professional attire for students with financial need. Awards may vary according to need. All funds will apply only toward professional attire and will not apply to tuition. Award items include suit, shirt and tie (men); pant, skirt or dess suit (women).

Applications for spring 2021 are open January 1-29, 2021.


(please note: the turnaround time is typically 7-10 business days)
Please provide a brief statement (approximately 200 words) of your financial situation, scholarships you are receiving and any other pertinent information.
Please list specific instances when you will wear the professional attire (e.g., specific course, employer visit, networking opportunity, interview).
