Another great criminal justice scholarship opportunity for students. The Lint Center for National Security Studies, Inc. is also offering the Army Staff Sgt. Richard S. Eaton Jr. Scholarship to students who are seeking a criminal justice degree and want to pursue a career in Alliance Building, Counterintelligence, Cultural Understanding, and National Security. The Lint Center will award a $1000 scholarship that can be used for tuition and other educational costs.
The only eligibility requirement is the applicant must be admitted to a university before applying for the scholarship. There are several documents a student must submit to apply for the scholarship. Students must submit a completed application, a photograph, current resume, proof of acceptance and enrollment at a 4-year university, academic transcripts, copies of special academic awards, and 2 letters of recommendation (from a teacher, supervisor, or community leader).
Additionally, applicants must submit 2 essays: one on Counter intelligence and National Security and the other is a Personal essay. The Counterintelligence and National Security essay should be 600-800 words and explain one of the goals or concepts of the Lint Center. The application gives a good description of what the scholarship committee is looking for, but they are looking for ground-breaking innovating ideas. The Personal essay should be one page, and discuss why you are right for the scholarship. The scholarship committee wants to understand you, your goals, your thoughts, and get a general feeling of who you are. At the end of both essays the student must input the following "I (request/do not request) this essay to be published on the Lint Center for National Security Studies, Inc website (with/without) my name published."
All documents, including the completed application, must be scanned into a PDF format and emailed to Scholarship@LintCenter.org. The due date is January 31, 2012; any applications received after January 31, 2012 will be considered for the following year.
You can get more information by emailing Info@LintCenter.org or going to this site, http://www.lintcenter.org/2009/Eaton.htm.
