High School Students at Grow Dat Youth Farm



Work as a student intern

At the start of every semester, and every summer we look for passionate students to join our team. Interns work on projects in various capacities and can have a real impact on the work they do. Tulane Architecture Students looking to apply look for an email from us announcing our search.

Every summer, we usually look for 5–6 full-time summer interns who are currently enrolled in the Tulane School of Architecture to assist our projects in affordable housing, public space, and project evaluation. Selected applicants will receive a $4,000 stipend for 8 weeks of full-time work, from May 31 through July 21, 2017. 

Our Summer 2017 call for applicants has closed; please check back in Spring 2018.


Applicants must be currently enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student at Tulane School of Architecture. Students who will be graduating in May 2017 are welcome and encouraged to apply!


Lodging, conference registration fees, and most meals will be provided during the conference. Students are expected to cover their transportation to and from the conference.

Working on the Green Line

Become a funder

It is important to note that we do not compete for work with professional architectural or design firms. Instead, we intend to demonstrate the value of good design in venues not often served by standard models of professional practice, thus we rely on the support of outside funders or grants. If you know of an opportunity, or would like to contribute to our work please get in touch {here}.
