Eligibility Criteria:
Psychology students must, at the time of application, be enrolled at a California doctoral academic program AND serving at a qualified internship.  These programs/agencies need not be CAPIC member programs.  

This internship must be the student’s final internship prior to graduation, and the student must graduate by December of 2018. 

Students must also complete fifteen (15) CAPIC/MHSA online training modules on mental health matters during the course of their internship and postdoctoral service.

Students must also be committed to working at a qualified postdoc after graduation, and must commence this work within six months of graduation.
The qualified postdoc site need not be identified at the time of application.

Failure to complete these obligations will require the return of all stipend funds.

A qualified site under this MHSA program is one which receives some county public mental health funding.  All county behavioral/mental health departments qualify.  NOTE:  CDCR and State Hospital sites are explicitly ineligible/unqualified sites under this MHSA program. Funds must be county mental health funds.   
Talk with your internship director (or Administrator, Finance Officer, Comptroller,  Executive Director, etc., as appropriate) to determine whether your site receives county mental health funds.   Additional guidance on whether your internship qualifies under this CAPIC/MHSA stipend program may be found here
