  • 1 February 2008 Press Release #7: Ms. Aehee Kim Alliance Building Scholarship Winner. See the MS Word version Press Release

    We had many good applications, essays and thoughtful submissions by outstanding scholars. The winner is Timothy W. Coleman.

    We have posted three of the essays. The competition was challenging. The winner had a great essay in addition to outstanding history and potential. He has worked in Washington DC, experienced the political process, and excelled in his jobs. His personal essay displayed excellent future potential for his employment in the National Service arena. There were a good number of Iraq veterans and some currently deployed. This round of competition showed the need for more scholarships to be awarded in the future because there are some great people with great potential to improve National Security.

The Lint Center for National Security Studies is proud to announce the new Ms. Aehee Kim Alliance Building Scholarship based on the generosity of Ms. Aehee Kim who notified Lint Center of her desire to create a scholarship.  This scholarship submission closure date is 31 January 2008.

Lint Center awards the Greenbi support for their international cultural exchange program. 

They are a musical group of college students named ‘Greenbi’ at Sogang University in Seoul, Korea. They will hold a concert with a special focus on inviting US military members stationed in Korea. They said, "We understand these soldiers are far from home and we will be providing music and entertainment in both English and Korea." This is a pilot program of expanding their annual concert to invite Americans as a Korea-America cultural exchange program. They are sending invites to both USFK MWR and USO in Yongsan.

They suffered a loss of their electronic key board and needed $300 to replace it. Due to their teaming with USO and providing Alliance Building actions, they have been awarded their needed funding and the concert will be in November 2007.
