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 pro-gram, or that they are on track to complete their doctoral 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 begins and ends in mid-August. Fellows maintain a full-time work schedule of approximately 40 hours per week, with some evening hours required for outreach programs and groups.

To apply, please submit a CV, letter of interest, current graduate transcript and documentation of readiness from your academic program by email to Brielle Stark-Adler, Ph.D., Director, Iona College Counseling Center:
