The University of Rhode Island is a quintessential New England campus - rural in feeling yet close to the city of Providence, the state’s capital. Linked to the city, the beaches, and nearly every corner of the state by both rail and public transit, the campus is easily accessible from Boston and New York. The University enrolls about 15,000 undergraduate and 3,000 graduate students, and has a full-time tenure-track teaching faculty of approximately 600.

Region Description:

Rhode Island is the smallest state but has more than 400 miles of coastline. This is not all ocean frontage but it is notable that all Rhode Islanders live within a 30-minute drive to the Atlantic Ocean or Narragansett Bay. Downtown Boston is about an hour away by car or bus, and New York City is a three-and-a-half hour drive.


Successful candidates will have completed all professional doctoral degree requirements, including internship, in clinical psychology, counseling psychology, or an equivalent psychology program from a regionally accredited institution of higher education.  This is defined as having on the first day of the fellowship either the diploma in hand or a letter from the Director of graduate studies verifying the completion of all degree requirements pending institutional graduation. Applicants should have a strong interest and experience in serving a college-age population.  Fellows will have the opportunity to focus their learning and service in such areas as group counseling or multicultural counseling.


Previous counseling center experience is desired.
