Income & Benefits

The base salary for interns in the class of 2018-2019 will be $25,000 per annum. In addition, interns will also receive a $1,000 allotment for the purchase of health insurance. This $1,000 is added to the base salary and is paid bi-weekly. Interns may purchase a health plan provided to students by the University or they may select a private policy of their choice.

Interns have 15 days per year of annual leave, which may be used for vacation or professional activities, and 10 days per year of sick leave, which may be use for personal illnesses or to care for family members who are ill. In addition, there are nine paid holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and the day after, and Christmas Day.

Interns are not officially enrolled graduate students at the University of Florida, and are classified as OPS (Other-Personal-Services) employees.
