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. Miller Fellows work part-time for up to 10 hours per week during the study periods, and up to 30 hours per week for 10 weeks during co-op or non-study periods, 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 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.
