Career Closet

What we offer

The Career Closet is a fund to provide interview attire for an internship or full time/careered position to students in financial need. Students may only need a professional pair of shoes or a whole outfit for that special day. The Career Closet is not a loan, however, students who receive support are strongly encouraged to repay the amount back to Tarleton’s Office of Development in order for other students to also benefit in times of need.

Applications will be reviewed by the committee comprised of Tarleton State staff and faculty. Awards will be determined based on the established criteria outlined in the application. Award amount will be determined based on the request, proof of need, and available funds. Most awards will not exceed $200, unless extenuating circumstances warrant a higher amount.

The administrative office for the Career Closet is located at the Career Services office on the Stephenville campus (Thompson Student Center, Room 218). Career Services will serve as the central receiving site for all four campuses (Stephenville, Fort Worth, Waco and Midlothian). All requests and awards will be tracked and recorded for student retention monitoring and reporting purposes.
