The Dayton-Wright Chapter "gives back" to the Miami Valley Region through its mechanical education assistance awards focused on encouraging interest, study, and careers in the scientific and engineering disciplines necessary for sustaining the national defense capability of the United States.
Since 1991, the chapter has contributed over $1,500,000 in support of: scholarships for undergraduate students pursuing technical degrees; scholastic assistance to military enlisted personnel also pursuing technical studies; Science Teaching Tools Awards to outstanding elementary through high school teachers; awards to Air Force Institute of Technology students for research excellence; outreach programs to minority junior and senior high school students encouraging and preparing them for technical undergraduate study; sponsorship of area high school students in AFCEA's annual National High School Science Fair Award Competition; and annual contributions to our Dayton-Wright Chapter Scholarship Endowment within the Dayton Foundation which ensures a sustained, Dayton-Wright capability for encouraging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) studies vital to AFCEA-supported National Defense objectives.
AFCEA's Dayton-Wright Chapter has nearly 700 hundred members and has won numerous awards recognizing its success in sponsoring annual InfoTech Conferences which feature distinguished speakers, technical presentations, and discussions among government, military, and industry conferees, as well as state-of-the-art C4I hardware and software technology exhibits from industry and government. InfoTech Conferences also highlight the Miami Valley as a National Center of Excellence for information technology.
