Summer Intern Program

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

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 who possess the design talent, work ethic, and enthusiasm necessary to become part of the Kirksey team and provide them with practical experience in a professional architectural environment that will enable the students to explore their areas of interest in the field of architecture. Individuals interested in sustainable design metrics and LEED documentation will be considered for internship with our Sustainability & Building Performance team.



Program Requirements

In order to identify individuals who are interested in developing their professional careers in Houston, Dallas, or Austin, Texas after graduation, Kirksey will receive applications beginning January 1, 2022 from students who will be entering the last year of a professional degree in either an architecture or interior design program following the summer of 2022. The Kirksey Summer Internship is open to U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents who are enrolled in an NAAB or CIDA accredited Architecture or Interior Design program at a U.S. Institution. Applications must be received at Kirksey by March 11, 2022 in order to be considered for the Internship Program.  We encourage early application as submissions will be reviewed and considered as they arrive.

Kirksey will begin contacting selected candidates on March 28th to schedule interviews. A selection committee will thereafter recommend candidates for further consideration for the available positions in the 2022 Internship Program. The length of each student’s internship will be determined individually based upon the student’s availability, skills, the firm’s needs, and other applicable requirements.
