Future Energy Professionals Scholarships
Students who participate in the Energy Fest FEP tours are 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. Past scholarship winners have gone
on to study Chemical and Mechanical Engineering at Louisiana State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, as well as the
Oil & Gas Production Program at South Louisiana Community College and Integrated Product Technologies at L.E. Fletcher Technical Community
College. The scholarship is awarded every other year, on a non-show year.
To Apply for the scholarship you must:
- Have participated in the 2022 Energy Fest FEP Tour
- Be a senior or junior in a Louisiana high school
- Plan to pursue a degree in a STEM field at a Louisiana college or university
The application requires:
- Two letters of recommendation from two applicable teachers and/or a professional in the STEM field
- One handwritten essay/personal statement
- Most recent high school transcript (certified and sealed)
Paper applications are not accepted. All eligible students received an email from LAGCOE’s Director of Operations with the link and password to apply.
The deadline for the 2023 FEP Scholarship will be January 2023. The next scholarship cycle will begin immediately after our next technical exposition.
Note: Scholarship applications open immediately after the FEP Tour. Seniors and juniors must apply during the scholarship cycle following the tour they attended. Scholarship recipients will have their award held until they begin college or university.
