Stipends & Benefits

The minimum stipend for psychology interns for the coming year is at least $26,000. Because interns are paid from several different sources, some stipends are slightly larger than the minimum. The current stipend provided by the VAMC for Charleston, South Carolina is $26,166. In addition to the stipend, the internship provides $500 in professional development funding that can be used to support travel to professional meetings. A number of other fringe benefits are available to interns, including health insurance, annual, professional, and educational leave, an excellent library system, computer services, and reduced-cost membership to the MUSC Wellness Center.
