Stipend and Benefits

For 2024-2025, the stipend for the psychology interns will be $40,300.

Internship begins August 1, 2024 and ends July 31, 2025.

A number of benefits are made available to interns by the university and CMHC.

  • Currently, UT pays 100% of the cost of medical and prescription drug insurance premiums for the employee and part of the cost of medical and prescription drug premiums for family members. Other benefits (e.g., life, disability, accident, dental and vision insurance) are available at additional cost. Employees can tailor coverages to fit their needs.
