The scholarship is named after longtime Professor of Chemistry, Dr. Richard "Doc" Kieft. Doc Kieft was a professor in the Chemistry Department at Monmouth College from 1975-2006. Loved by all students, Doc was honored as professor of the year by the Monmouth College student body in 1995. Doc truly loved his job; he would spend many evenings on the chemistry floor helping students as well as talking with them about their day. As one of the biggest believers in a Monmouth education, Doc left his entire estate to the Chemistry Department. These endowed funds are currently being used for Chemistry and Biochemistry majors for summer research; for travel to National Chemistry Meetings; for the Garrett W. Thiessen Chair of Chemistry, and for this prestigious scholarship.
