Miller Fellowships are offered to full-time, degree-seeking Greene County college students and Yellow Springs High School juniors and seniors who engage in service for the benefit of the Yellow Springs community.
Students begin by attending the Nonprofit Leadership Institute to gain an understanding of nonprofits to provide a grounding and framework for learning from their experiences as a Miller Fellow. Students learn about how nonprofits operate, what it takes to be successful in the nonprofit world, and the important role they have as ambassadors to the community, representing their schools and the YSCF. They meet nonprofit leaders in the community and gain experience through hands-on work sessions.
After successfully completing the NLI, students are eligible for internships at community nonprofits as employees of the YSCF. The Encore Miller Fellows will help students find the right match for their interests from the host organizations. All internships are for a quarter (10 weeks) and can be over multiple quarters with the same host.
