CPS Post-Graduate Psychology Fellowship

Post-Graduate Psychology Fellowship at

Fordham University Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS)

Fordham University Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) will offer two postgraduate fellowship positions for the 2024-2025 academic year at the Rose Hill Campus (Bronx, NY) with concentrations in Training, Groups, or Social Justice & Outreach, and one
postgraduate fellow position at the Lincoln Center Campus (New York, NY) with a concentration in International Mental Health (Mandarin speaker required). The 12-month fellowship will commence on or around August 16, 2024. 

The fellowship carries a stipend of $41,400, full university benefits (described in detail below) and fully meets the licensure requirement of supervised postdoctoral psychology, mental health counseling, and social work hours in New York and many other states. We emphasize generalist practice from a relational psychodynamic perspective, while allowing fellows to develop additional expertise in an administrative area relevant to university counseling (e.g., training and supervision, group therapy, outreach/prevention). We have a social justice-centered equity-based treatment model.

Fordham CPS is committed to diversifying our staff and to increasing diversity in the field through quality training. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals from all religious backgrounds, racial/ethnic minority individuals, immigrants and international students, LGBTQ and gender-expansive individuals, second-career/non-traditional-age applicants, individuals with disabilities, and others who are historically underrepresented in the mental health fields.

At Lincoln Center, the only
