Effective November 29, 2023, the fellowship stipend will be $55,505.84 for master's level and $70,905.90 for doctoral level fellows. Effective December 1, 2022, CSTE will no longer be reimbursing health insurance due to the stipend increase to support the cost of fellows’ health insurance premiums.
The stipend is a fixed non-negotiable amount.
The stipend is a taxable amount. CSTE assumes no tax liability and will not submit a Form 1099 at the end of the year during the fellow’s training but will provide a summary of earnings for each calendar year. Fellows should seek individual tax advice as necessary from qualified professionals. There will be a Tax Workshop Session during the AEF Orientation that will provide general guidance on income taxes for fellows.
