The purpose of the Miller Fellowship Program is to provide support for Antioch College students who engage in service for the benefit of the Yellow Springs community. The program was established in 2010 with a $3 million bequest by the Nolan J. and Richard D. Miller Endowment Fund, which is held as an endowment and administered by the YSCF. Nolan was associate editor of The Antioch Review and a beloved professor. His brother, Richard, was a highly regarded artist working in many different media.
The Yellow Springs Community Foundation awards grants directly to local nonprofits who then hire Antioch College students for meaningful work within their organizations.
To date, 23 local nonprofit organizations have applied and participated in the program, which offers a unique opportunity for students to secure a paid, one-year employment opportunity working for a nonprofit organization in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Students engage in the world of work receiving valuable projects and strong mentorship.
