The Lint Center for National Security Studies:
Who We Are – The Lint Center: The Lint Center for National Security Studies, Inc., founded in 2007, is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization created to award merit-based scholarships for Counterintelligence and National Security Workers, their children and National Security scholars, and to advance the study of National Security, cross-cultural studies, and global understanding.
The Center’s Mandate – The mission of the Lint Center is to foster and further the educational development and opportunities for the next generation of America’s Counterintelligence and National Security Workers. The Center focuses on empowering talented individuals, enhancing the study of national security issues, and enabling emerging leaders to be mentored by established current and former industry experts.
The Center’s Focus – The Lint Center strives to adhere to three principles: 1) identify promising individuals and assist in educational pursuits through scholarship i2) provide talented individuals with a meaningful leadership development mentoring program; and 3) create a forum for the dissemination and discussion of National Security Studies through the Center’s online Web-portal.
The Center’s Leadership – Board of Directors: The Lint Center’s executive board is comprised of current and former members of the U.S. intelligence community. Our executive team represents individuals with expertise and experience in a broad array of our country’s intelligence agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Energy, and various other branches including elements of the Department of Defense.
Message from Mr. James Lint – Purpose Driven for Tomorrow: “Our driving purpose is to give-back. The ultimate aim of the Lint Center is to empower the next-generation of America’s National Security Workers, enable them to achieve their educational goals, to ensure the continued defense of American democracy, and the protection of this nation’s most prized freedoms.
While I was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps in Greece in 1977, I stumbled upon my life calling by happenstance. A Russian intelligence operative approached me while my unit was on a port visit and inquired about detailed specifics of our Navy and our naval nuclear capabilities. Realizing this was not a joke, I reported it, and soon found myself recruited into the counterintelligence field.
As an inexperienced member of the intelligence community, I realized that I had been given a great opportunity because I responded correctly to past security awareness training and unusual circumstances. A mentor once remarked, ‘I invest in stocks for my future, but I invest in people for the country’.’
The Lint Center and I recognize that investing in people often generates the greatest Return on Investment. As such, the Lint Center was created to make this concept a reality for those who wish to follow in the footsteps of national service.”
