For the third consecutive year, a University of Hawai`i at Mānoa College of Engineering student has been selected by the National Consortium for Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) Research (NCMR) as the recipient of its prestigious scholarship.  The NCMR scholarship is bestowed upon students who have achieved an outstanding academic record, personal success, and an interest in participating in national security research. 

This year’s recipient is Larry Martin, an electrical engineering undergraduate. The $10,000 award will be applied towards tuition, books, and room/board. Previous recipients of the award include electrical engineering students Reece Iwami (2008) and Alexis Zamora (2007). Martin is one of 46 recipients nationwide to have received the award this year.

“One of the main focuses of the NCMR is to prepare future scientists and technologists while encouraging a future career path in the intelligence community.  We are pleased to award yet another outstanding candidate from UH Mānoa. The UH System has been a major contributor to national security research in the past and will continue to be so in the future,” said Dr. Peter Bythrow, chief scientist for the National MASINT Management Office.
