Student Miller Fellowship

Miller Fellowships are predominately for Antioch College students who engage in service for the benefit of the Yellow Springs community.

The Yellow Springs Community Foundation accepts proposals once a year from Yellow Springs nonprofit organizations that wish to place Miller Fellows in their organization on an annual basis, usually in early June. Miller Fellows work part-time for up to 10 hours per week during the academic year, co-op up to 30 hours per week for 10 weeks, and/or special projects.

Organizations will be awarded a grant of “hours” (vs. dollars), the students will be employees of the YSCF with FICA being the responsibility of the YSCF. Organizations will be responsible for managing the Miller Fellow and providing approved payroll hours to the Foundation on a bi-weekly basis. This change reduces the FICA expense from the awarded Organizations, permits smaller nonprofits without payroll capabilities to engage in the program which expands the program opportunities for Miller Fellows and provides flexibility to support group  “project” related activities for the Miller Fellows and nonprofits.

Nonprofits must include the expected benefit to the Miller Fellow(s) and Yellow Springs and Miami Township in their application. 

Antioch students are encouraged to attend the annual job fair held at the beginning of the Fall quarter. Prior to attending interested students should complete a resume and review the Nonprofit Directory to learn more about the Miller Fellow Employers. This event is an opportunity for both campus employers and community employers to speak directly with our talented students and to recruit them for local jobs.
