Chris Miller, a young autistic adult who had been bullied for most of his life, created Captain Spectrum to help teach kindness and to encourage friendships including those with disabilities. Through the Captain Spectrum persona, he encouraged kindness and helped kids on the autism spectrum develop courage and self-confidence. The courage he had to share his experiences has touched the lives of so many.

When Chris Miller's life tragically ended in February 2021, AutismTN partnered with the Miller family to ensure Chris's efforts to decrease bullying and increase courage would continue. We believe that there are many autistic teens and adults who demonstrate kindness, work tirelessly to fight bullying, and encourage friendships.

In partnership with Captain Spectrum, we recognize and honor the legacy of Chris Miller with a Post-Secondary Educational Scholarship.

We encourage individuals who meet the following criteria to apply.

1) Applicant will be a person on the autism spectrum

2) Applicant will be seeking a post-secondary opportunity at a university, community college, or vocational technical school

3) Applicant is a resident of Tennessee
