Lint Center Announces New Scholarships

Center Launches the Jim & Anna Hyonjoo Lint National Security Scholarship to Support America’s Future National Security Scholars

The Lint Center for National Security Studies, a non-profit organization created to further the educational development of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, today announced the Jim & Anna Hyonjoo Lint National Security Scholarship. The new initiative is the largest scholarship offered by the Center to date and aims to support undergraduate and post-graduate educational pursuits of scholars interested in Counterintelligence, International Affairs, and National Security Studies.

The new scholarship will provide a $1,500 to the winner to assist with tuition and other educational costs. The deadline for scholarship consideration is July 31. Runners-up will automatically be considered for the Virginia & Frank Misselhorn Memorial Scholarship and it will provide recipients with a $500 scholarship. Both will be awarded each summer.

“Through the generosity of Jim and Anna, this new scholarship initiative will strengthen and reaffirm the importance of identifying potential National Security workers who demonstrate a sincere commitment to preserving American security,” said Ms. Kay Lee Nicholas, Executive Board Member, Lint Center for National Security Studies.

“The importance of understanding the role of leadership in National Security Studies cannot be overstated”, observed Timothy W. Coleman, Recipient of the Lint Center’s Ms. Aehee Kim Alliance Building Scholarship (‘08). “This scholarship will support individuals who clearly demonstrate a propensity to serve, a desire to expand their scholarly skills in cross-cultural studies, and who offer creative solutions to today’s great security challenges in the global context in which national security leaders operate.”

“As our world continues to become interconnected, people, National Security Workers, and America’s future leaders need to develop greater cross-cultural understanding to implement policy and effect positive change,” said Anna Hyonjoo Lint.  “Jim and I are delighted to create this scholarship to identify, support, and mentor emerging national security leaders interested in pursuing work in the Counterintelligence, International Affairs, and the National Security arena.”
