John and Barbara Yellott Award

The American Solar Energy Society is pleased to announce the John and Barbara Yellott Award, given to a graduate student concentrating on solar energy in a recognized institution of higher learning.

John I. Yellott was instrumental in guiding the activities of the predecessor organization of ASES, the Association for Applied Solar Energy, in its early years during the 1950s. He was a recognized researcher in the solar energy field, a user of solar energy in his own home, and an entrepreneur participating in the growth of the solar industry. He was associated with the Department of Architecture at Arizona State University where he has taught solar energy subjects. He and his wife, Barbara Yellott, were long interested in students and made gifts to ASES for the purpose of recognizing and supporting a student working in the solar energy field.

The recipient of the award must be a graduate student concentrating his or her program in the field of solar energy. The student should submit a letter outlining his or her graduate program, the emphasis on solar energy within the program, and how the award might be used to further the applicant’s education in the field. The recipient must also hold a membership in the American Solar Energy Society at the time of application.

This application should be completed by the student.

The award for 2014 will be $500.
