Important Dates & Deadlines

  • The 2024-25 internship begins the first week of August and ends by mid-June.  The number of contract days is 197 and interns are expected to accumulate at least 2000 hours during that span.  The internship is considered a 10-month/2000 hour internship. It is recommended that intern applicants explore their university and licensing requirements of all states in which they may wish to practice upon the completion of their internship.

    The application deadline is NOVEMBER 10, 2023 at 11:59 P.M. EST. We will contact you by December 15th regarding your application status and interview scheduling in order for you to obtain lower travel fares with advance notice.

    A completed application to our program will consist of:

    • APPIC "universal" application including Program Verification of Eligibility for Internship including curriculum vitae, all official Graduate school transcripts and three letters of recommendation
    • One sample psychological evaluation

    All applications are processed through the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) Internship Matching Program.  The Match is sponsored and supervised by the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). The Match is administered on behalf of APPIC by National Matching Services Inc. This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant.


    Interviews are scheduled to take place in person at CFISD January 5th, 8th, 10th, 12th, 16th and 18th. However, virtual interviews may be requested.  There are a limited number of interview slots reserved each date and they are filled on a first request basis.

    If interviews occur in person please plan on spending at least four hours with us. If you are interviewing before lunch, you will begin your day with us at 8am for a brief presentation and Q&A session with the current interns, designed to help you learn more about our internship program and district. In between (or after) this orientation and your interviews, you will be taken on a tour of campuses within our district and spend time with current interns and staff. At noon, you will be provided lunch and the opportunity to visit with available department staff and interns.
    If you are interviewing after lunch, please join us for lunch at noon (our treat). Your orientation will begin at 1pm. The remainder of your afternoon will be spent in the interview, campus tour, and visits with staff (as detailed above).

    During your interview time, we will ask to take a photo of you in order to assist us in remembering you after we have conducted all interviews. You may, however, elect not to have your photo taken if you choose. This choice will have no impact on your interview or status.

    Interviews may be requested to occur virtually for the 2024 Match.  Four hours should be reserved for interviews, time for current intern, staff Q&A's and a virtual tour.
