YSCF Request for Proposals

RFP for Antioch College Miller Fellows

The Miller Fellowship Program is a program of the Yellow Springs Community Foundation (YSCF), funded by the Nolan J. and Richard D. Miller Endowment Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support fellowships for Antioch College students who engage in service for the benefit of the Yellow Springs community. The basic premise of the endowment is that it is meant to foster mutual respect between Antioch College and the Yellow Springs community.

Yellow Springs Community Foundation will be accepting proposals from Yellow Springs nonprofits that wish to place Miller Fellows in their organization. In accordance with the Antioch College curriculum, for the 2013-2014 academic year, Miller Fellows will be available for up to 10 hours per week during study quarters, and 30-40 hours per week during their work quarter. More details are provided in the RFP.

YSCF will pay, through grants to the successful non-profits, the direct labor costs of the fellowships. The hourly rate for Miller Fellows is $10/hour. Overhead costs will be the responsibility of the non-profit organization. The Foundation anticipates funding between 10 and 18 fellowships during the 2013-2014 academic year, depending on the mix of full study-work programs and study-only programs.

A copy of the Request for Proposals and the Proposal Coversheet is available on the YSCF Website, or may be had by emailing
