Resources for Faculty

Policies and Procedures

Required for all College of Agriculture and Life Sciences proposals, or proposals in which faculty members are co-investigators.

In 2002, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) research division established the Award for Research Excellence for the purpose of promoting research in the college.

To achieve this purpose, CALS Research annually presents two Awards for Research Excellence to two CALS faculty members who have reached a level of research achievement that is judged to be the most significant within their discipline. One award recognizes excellence in conducting basic research, while the other rewards excellence in mission-oriented or applied research.
