Application Requirements

Applicants must provide documentation attesting that they have earned a doctorate (Ph.D. or Psy.D.) in Clinical or Counseling Psychology from an APA-accredited program; or that they have earned a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from a New York State accredited program; or that they are on track to complete their degree prior to beginning the Fellowship. Candidates with ABD status will be considered only if they possess significant experience working clinically with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Strong preference is given to candidates with experience working clinically with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and/or in a college counseling center setting.

Experience working with multicultural populations, and/or clinical training in multicultural counseling, is highly desirable.

Through the generous support of the Dolce family, the Fellowship offers a competitive stipend and benefits. Fellows are responsible for maintaining a log of their total hours as well as clinical service hours to ensure that they meet requirements for licensure. This may require the Fellow to make adjustments in the timing or amount of time off.

The Dolce Fellowship appointment begins and ends in mid-August. Fellows choosing the full-time, 12-month appointment maintain a work schedule of approximately 40 hours per week and fellows choosing the part-time, two-year appointment maintain a work schedule of a minimum of 21 hours per week. Some evening hours are required for outreach programs and groups regardless of whether a fellow is full- or part-time.
