Are you in need of professional attire for an upcoming interview, Career Fair, or other professional development experience, but have financial concerns?

Thanks to the generous support of our alumni, Vanderbilt’s Commodore Closet provides gift cards to undergraduate students to purchase professional attire.

Students may request a $250 gift card to Men’s Wearhouse, Ann Taylor / Loft or Stein Mart.

Requests are accepted throughout the year. Please fill out the form below, print it out and bring it to the Career Center.

Qualifications

– Must be a current junior or senior

– Must have financial need based on records with the Office of Student Financial Services

What is expected of me?

– Complete the request & permission form for the Career Center to contact the Financial Aid Office

– Pick up the card & packet at the Career Center

– Within a week of purchasing, turn in all receipts to the Career Center

– Write a thank you note to the donor (may be anonymous if preferred) and give the note to the Career Center in person or electronically. If submitting via email send to gerilynn.pearce@vanderbilt.edu

Please note:

– The card will not affect your financial aid, but you may need to complete a Form 1099 for income tax purposes

– We have a limited supply of cards due to funding. Please allow up the 10 business days from your time of request to receive your card.
