The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) research division established the Award for Research Excellence in 2002 for the purpose of promoting research in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences of Virginia Tech.

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