Stipend and Benefits for Internship


Each intern receives a stipend of $25,000 per year and is paid every other Friday. Interns are paid their stipend as non-exempt employees at an hourly rate of $12.02. CAPS complies with all Federal and State regulations for payroll.

Liability Insurance:

Professional liability coverage is provided for all university related clinical activities.


Each intern receives a University Benefits package that includes the option to select major medical, dental, vision, long-term disability, and life insurance.

Time Off:

  • Interns are allowed all University holidays and seasonal days (typically 15-16 days per year).
  • Interns accrue up to 12 days of sick leave over the year. Sick leave is to be used for doctors' appointments and/or illness.
  • Professional development leave time is provided (up to 5 days per year) for time off that may include attending conferences, job search interviews, and/or dissertation committee meetings, contingent upon the approval of the Director.
  • In addition to the professional development, holidays and seasonal days that afford interns with time off, interns will have accrued 2 weeks of vacation by the end of the internship year. We ask that the interns preserve these vacation hours to be taken during the final 2 weeks of the internship year.
