Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH), a leading global professional services company, has gifted $30,000 in support of University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students interested in intelligence studies and careers in the intelligence field.

“Hawaiʻi is focused on technology adaptation and tech-enabling its workforce, and Booz Allen has supported this vision for years,” said Maurice Anstead, Indo-Pacific lead for the company’s military intelligence and cyber portfolio. “We developed this scholarship to encourage the study of national security, or intelligence paired with tech-enabled intelligence production such as advanced data analytics, data engineering, data science, digital engineering, and programming in various languages.”

The Department of Political Science in the College of Social Sciences houses the Academy for Hawaiʻi Intelligence Studies (AHI), which hosted a summer cohort of 25 Hawaiʻi high school students in July 2023. They participated in an in-depth look at the fast-growing field of national intelligence, and networked with industry experts from Hawaiʻi-based firms.

AHI’s free four-week course included three weeks of online learning, culminating in a one-week in-person capstone experience on the UH Mānoa campus.

“We are deeply grateful for Booz Allen Hamilton’s generous scholarship gift, which is paving the way for the next generation of leaders in the intelligence field,” said CSS Dean Denise Eby Konan.
