Internship Benefits and Stipend


The internship is for a one-year period from August 1, 2023, to July 31, 2024. There is a $43,488/year stipend. Please note that this was an increase of $10,000 approved just prior to the application due date.


Basic employee benefits include use of Dufour Athletic Center and use of the Metro Library Consortium. Catholic University Staff level health insurance is available. Interns receive 12 paid vacation days and 12 paid sick days during their internship year. Interns are encouraged to take the majority of their vacation time during the summer months, when it is least disruptive to the functioning of the Counseling Center and to the care of our clients.

Liability Insurance

We ask that interns carry their own professional liability insurance coverage. Malpractice insurance is available for student members of the American Psychological Association at a relatively low cost; the Counseling Center will pay the cost of this insurance.
