Lint Center for National Security Studies Awards Scholarship to Graduate at the University of Texas at El Paso


 WASHINGTON, D.C., December 19, 2011 – 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 that Matt Richardson was awarded the Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship. This scholarship award is the largest offered by the Center and it aims to support undergraduate and post-graduate educational pursuits of scholars interested in Counterintelligence, International Affairs, and National Security Studies.


“I am honored to be awarded this scholarship from the Lint Center for National Security Studies, as it will enable me to continue to excel in my studies,” said Matt Richardson, a graduate student at the University of Texas at El Paso. “The award and the Lint Center’s recognized mentoring program will be a great asset to me as I seek to complete my M.S. in Intelligence and National Security Studies and pursue post-graduation employment opportunities.”


“The Lint Center is pleased to award the 2011 Jim and Anna Hyonjoo Lint Scholarship to Matt Richardson,” said James Lint, Chairman and CEO of the Lint Center for National Security Studies. “The Center and the Scholarship Review Committee were extremely impressed by Matt’s essay which focused on combating the drug trade between Mexico and the United States. His focus and the challenge he proposes is that America needs to fundamentally rethink its tactical and strategic approach. We look forward to working with Matt and pairing him up with a mentor who can best advise him as he continues his studies and seeks to identify how best to apply his talents.”
