Future Energy Professionals

Future Energy Professionals

Future Energy Professionals Program was established to encourage and support students to become future energy professionals who pursue technical positions which fuel our world. This LAGCOE program is supported by the LAGCOE Education Fund, a Fund at Community Foundation of Acadiana.

Beginning with LAGCOE 2013, Young Professionals of LAGCOE volunteers teamed up with UL-Lafayette Engineering Ambassadors to introduce high school juniors and seniors interested in STEM majors to the energy industry through an organized tour of LAGCOE's technical exposition & conference. High school students learned about the energy industry while touring the exposition for a hands-on experience with the technology and mechanics of the oil and gas industry.

Students who participated in the LAGCOE FEP tours were eligible to apply for the LAGCOE Future Energy Professionals Scholarship: an award to goal-oriented students planning to enroll into a Louisiana university or college in pursuit of a STEM-centric Degree. The inaugural scholarship winners have gone on to study Chemical and Mechanical Engineering at Louisiana State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The second round of scholarships will be awarded to students who participated in the 2015 tours in Spring 2016.
