The Guidant Foundation established the scholarship in late 2005 to honor Mr. Ronald Dollens, a Purdue alumnus, in recognition of his leadership and professional ingenuity. Over the course of his career, Dollens' leadership in industry and the life sciences served as a catalyst for many advances in cardiovascular research and development.
