Styled for Success
The Styled for Success Program is a new initiative made possible through a generous gift from Susan B. Rosenthal. The program promotes employability by equipping students with a demonstrated financial need with professional attire and ensures that they are ready to enter the job market - Styled for Success!
The purpose of Styled for Success is to enable eligible students to purchase professional attire for job interviews with a “clothing award” of up to $250. The program offers monetary support for NCCU students, who because of financial constraints, would not be in the position to purchase appropriate professional attire for an interview. Such interviews could be for an internship, graduate school interview, student teaching placement, or full-time employment opportunity.
