Summer Intern Program

Summer Intern Program

Summer architecture internships for students to explore their interests in the architecture field.

Summer Internship Program

The Kirksey Summer Internship Program for Architecture & Interior Design was created to identify students prior to the last year of their professional degree in architecture or interior design at an accredited U.S. institution. The program will provide practical experience in a professional architectural environment that will enable the students to explore their areas of interest in the field of architecture. Beyond the daily work experience the students will be involved in weekly seminars on diverse subjects within the business of architecture and weekly site visits to projects of varying types in different stages of completion.

Program Requirements

In order to identify individuals who are interested in developing their professional careers in Houston, Texas, after graduation, Kirksey will receive applications from students who will be entering the last year of a professional degree in either an architecture or interior design program. Only students in programs at accredited U.S. schools will be considered. Qualified candidates will complete the final year of a Bachelor of Architecture or Master of Architecture degree from a U.S. institution with an NAAB accredited program or an Interior Design degree from a U.S. institution with a CIDA accredited program in the year following the Summer Internship Program.
