Stipend, Benefits and Liability Insurance
Interns receive a salary of $27,000. Benefits include health insurance, dental and vision plans, 12 annual holidays, 12 sick and 12 vacation days (equivalent to all first-year employees); library, parking, and sports complex privileges, and $250 conference support. (The salary is set at “0.5 FTE” in recognition of the training status of interns, who are both employees and trainees). Interns are also provided with up to five workdays for professional development elsewhere: dissertation defense, conference time, etc.
As paid employees, interns are covered by the University’s insurance program; nevertheless they are encouraged to carry their own professional liability coverage as well. APA provides malpractice insurance to students at reasonable rates.
