Albert Cooper was a noted scientist and educator. In 1978, shortly after his death, his wife Louis Cooper established the scholarship to recognize students involved in undergraduate research in the NKU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Department faculty select one or two rising seniors who have been active in department undergraduate research during their time at NKU. Recipients receive a scholarship and are recognized on a plaque outside the department office.
