DMA Scholarship with the University of Dayton

In 1993, DMA established a scholarship with the University of Dayton. Every year, UD provides this award to one student who is pursuing a major in Computer Science, Computer Info Systems, or Management Info Systems on a full-time basis.


Hamvention is held in mid-May every year at the Greene County Fairgrounds, hosted by the Dayton Area Radio Association (DARA). This is the world’s largest amateur radio conference and product exhibition. Many DMA members are also amateur radio operators who volunteer their time to help with Hamvention, not as representatives of DMA, but as individuals who want to see this event continue to thrive.


Techfest is held in mid-February every year at Sinclair College, hosted by the Affiliate Societies Council (ASC) of Dayton. This event is two days packed full of science and technology for school children and their families. The more than 70 hands-on displays and free sessions are provided by local corporations, colleges, and nonprofits. The event is free to exhibitors and to attendees. DMA usually sends three teams: Dayton Computer Museum, Linux SIG, DMA.
