The goal of this award is to recognise outstanding completed research projects, funded by USPOULTRY or the USPOULTRY Foundation, which have made a significant positive impact on the poultry industry. The nominee may be recognised for multiple completed USPOULTRY research projects, all focused on the same subject area.

Nominations can be accepted from the universities and research institutions that conduct poultry research, as well as from anyone in the research community or any USPOULTRY member, staff and sponsored committee. Self-nominations are also allowed. Nominations should focus on research projects completed within the past five years, but may include projects completed at an earlier time if a project’s impact has only recently become recognised.

To submit a nomination, please send a letter to Dr John Glisson, vice president of research, which includes the nominee's name, a brief description of the nominee's research accomplishments and the impact of the research.

The recipient of the Charles Beard Research Excellence Award will be the primary researcher who conducted the recognized research project(s) and will receive round-trip transportation to, and two nights lodging at, the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia. A cash prize of $1,500 will also be awarded. The award will be presented at IPPE during the International Poultry Scientific Forum by Dr Beard and the chairman of the Foundation Research Advisory Committee. The 2018 Charles Beard Research Excellence Award went to Dr Daral Jackwood, professor in the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine at The Ohio State University, stationed at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, Ohio.

USPOULTRY and its Foundation operate a comprehensive research programme incorporating all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. Since the inception of the research program, USPOULTRY has reinvested more than $30 million dollars into the industry in the form of research grants, with the International Poultry Expo, part of IPPE, as the primary source for the funding. More than 50 universities and federal and state facilities have received grants over the years.
