The Lint Center, a non-profit charity, focused on supporting the educational pursuits of the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, today formally announced 3 of its semi-annual scholarship award winners. Congratulations to Mr. Miguel Ibarra, Mr. Zachary Przystup, and Mr. Greg Williamson for winning the Counterintelligence Special Agent, Staff Sgt. Richard S. Eaton Jr. Memorial, Lee and Byun International Relations and Cultural Awareness, and Mr. Jack McCoy scholarships.

The Lint Center scholarships include a monetary, material, and networking gift to its winners. The monetary gifts range from $500 to $1,000 and are to be used for investments in education and development. The other two gifts, winners consider invaluable. They are a year-long subscription to leading geo-political analysts and world-renowned forecasting organization, Stratfor and an official introduction to our vast mentor network with a matched one-on-one mentor from the National Security community in the scholarship winner’s area or organization of interest.

Lint Center scholarship winners are chosen on various grounds but are all well-rounded individuals whom the scholarship namesake would be or would have been proud to be represented by. They must have soaring letters of recommendation, a good transcript, a pointed essay on Counterintelligence or National Security, and a personal essay that introduces the applicant-winner to the Scholarship Board. Most of all, the scholarship winners must possess a presence of being that undoubtedly epitomizes one of a future National Security professional: a potential for leadership, integrity of character, and clear determination.

Mr. Lint, Chairman and CEO of the Lint Center, considers the Lint Center scholarships to be direct investments in the individual and the future of the United States. Created in 2007, the Lint Center for National SecurityStudies, a non-profit 501(3)c, aimed to fill a niche void, one that teamed emerging and talented national security rookies with veterans in the National Security community. “The old saying that ‘rookies make rookie mistakes’ is a truism, however, the number and severity does not have to be of that cardinal reality. The Lint Center Mentoring Program, including the scholarship package, strives to elucidate to that end.”

With the winners announced today, there have been 24 Lint Center Scholarships awarded. These winners have been male and female, active US military, veterans, and nonveterans, and undergraduate and graduate students from top-tier institutions all over the the United States. The Lint Center is proud to now count them amongst our affiliate community.

About the January 2012 Scholarships
Counterintelligence Special Agent, Staff Sgt. Richard S. Eaton Jr. Memorial Scholarship
The Richard S. Eaton Jr. Scholarship was established in honor of Staff Sgt. Richard Eaton, a United States Army Counterintelligence Special Agent and Bronze Star recipient who died in Ar Ramadi, Iraq, on August 12, 2003.

Mr. Lint, describes Special Agent Eaton as,“a Counterintelligence Agent whose exemplary achievements during his career act as a testament to the character, conviction, and courage of those who continue to serve this nation. He lived all the life he had. The Lint Center is committed to ensuring Rick’s deeds, personal example, and noble selflessness are both honored and memorialized.”

The following is a link for a more detailed description of the Counterintelligence Special Agent Richard S. Eaton Memorial Jr. scholarship.

Lee and Byun International Relations and Cultural Awareness Scholarship
The Lee and Byun Scholarship is established in the name of two people who lived through the trials of the Korean War, and through that, gained an understanding and appreciation for freedom and acts of kindness from other cultures.

Mr. Lint describes the essence of the scholarship by citing Mrs. Byun’s personal story. “Mrs. Byun, a 12-year-old during the Korean War, was evacuated by US Marines. Her story is a reminder of the cyclical flow that seemingly small efforts have on individuals even decades later-an instrumental experience in the great generosity the family has showed the Lint Center.”

Jack McCoy Scholarship
The Mr. Jack McCoy Scholarship was established in honor of Mr. McCoy, a former Sailor who participated on a minesweeper during the Inchon Landing in the Korea War with a well-developed expertise in Southeast Asia. Mr. McCoy had a great understanding of cultural differences and a love for volunteering with college kids.

Dr. Anna Hyonjoo Lint, Vice-chairwoman and Chief Operations Officer of the Lint Center, describes Mr. McCoy as,“an example of what is great in the United States. Mr. McCoy had a great understanding of cultural differences, the sort of understanding that helped him become a great unofficial ambassador.”
