These investments are preparing bright students to take advantage of current and emerging job opportunities, meet society’s most pressing needs and serve the communities in which they will live and work.


The National Petroleum Council (NPC), a federally chartered and privately funded advisory committee, was established by the Secretary of the Interior in 1946 at the request of President Harry S. Truman. In 1977, the U.S. Department of Energy was established and the NPC’s functions were transferred to the new Department.
