Statement of Research
The Statement of Research is to be written by the student and must represent the student's own thinking. It is to be written using non-specialized terms that are clear and unambiguous, so that someone not intimately familiar with the specific field of research but with a solar energy background can understand the material. The Statement of Research is limited to three pages including figures. (Type size should be no smaller that 12 points and margins no less than one inch.) It should include a brief overview of the research, method of approach, and discussion of potential significance of the results.
