The Dan Archwamety scholarship was established to give hope, affirmation, and financial assistance to young people on the autism spectrum who plan to continue their schooling after high school. In collaboration with the Autism Society of Nebraska, the Archwamety family created the scholarship in memory of Dan, who died on June 1, 1997, as a result of a bike-truck accident, shortly after he completed his sophomore year at the University of Nebraska, Kearney.

The scholarship will be presented at the NE ASD Network Conference at the Thursday evening dinner event at the Younes Conference Center North in Kearney Nebraska April 4th, 2024
