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 or Austin, Texas, after graduation, Kirksey will receive applications beginning in January of 2019, 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. The appication period is closed and submissions are currently being reviewed for summer 2019 internships. Kirksey will contact selected candidates to schedule interviews. A selection committee will thereafter recommend candidates for further consideration for the available positions in the 2019 Internship Program. The length of each student’s internship will be determined individually based upon skills, the firm’s needs, and other applicable requirements.

Internship Application Process

Interested candidates should send an application letter expressing their interest in the Kirksey Summer Internship Program with the following attachments:

  • An application letter expressing their interest in the Kirksey Summer Internship Program.
  • A résumé demonstrating all work experience
  • A current transcript from an accredited U.S. institution reflecting a minimum GPA of 3.3 (if in a Master’s program, also include undergraduate transcript)
  • At least three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a design studio professor.
