dv3x2 Internship Program July 14th-18th - calling all firms! Apply to host students by June 30th!

We have 21 students accepted into the program this year! If your firm is interested, please apply at this link by June 30th!

This is the 5th year AIA Austin designvoice committee has hosted the dv3x2 Internship Program! Over the past 4 years, 29 students and 24 firms have participated in the program. This program was initiated to give high school students interested in design a glimpse of the daily life of a design office prior to delving into a university program. This year 21 students have been accepted into the program with interest in several design disciplines including Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning and Design, Interior Design, Graphic Design, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Structural Engineering.

Each firm hosts 3 students for 2 hours per visit for a total time commitment of 6 hours (3 students x 2 hours) over the week of July 14th. A firm may choose to host all 3 students on one day or spread out the visits over the week.  A firm also has the option to host more than 3 students. Having each student rotate through 3 firms will give them an opportunity to experience a variety of design approaches and atmospheres. Below firms can select the times for each visit and the students will be matched, both parties will then be notified.   Before the program begins there will be the dv3x2 Kick-off (7/10 at 6:30 pm at the CFA) where at least 1 firm participant is strongly encouraged to attend. All the participating students will be required to attend. This will serve as an introduction between the program organizers, firm participants and the students. Organizers will also be there to answer questions and comments about the program.    On July 18th from 9 am-11 am, the last day of the internship week, firms will be invited to the dv3X2 Internship Program Finale. This event is a Tour & Talk given at Zach Theater by the designers from Andersson-Wise Architects. The program will begin with breakfast and coffee. Also in attendance will be the students and their families. If you have any questions please contact Catherine French at aiadv3x2@gmail.com.
