Internship Program

Opening: Nov. 13, 2017 / Closing: OPEN

At Eskew+Dumez+Ripple (EDR) we appreciate the fresh enthusiasm, ambitious problem solving, and diverse backgrounds that interns and young professionals bring to the quality of work in our studio. Situated in one of the most culturally rich cities in the world, New Orleans offers an urban environment with a vibrant music scene, world-class restaurants, a deep history of cultures and traditions, and the unique opportunity to make a difference in the largest urban renewal project ever undertaken in our country.

To that end, and considering the upcoming changes to IDP and ARE programs, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple is announcing the implementation of a year round internship program.

The goal of the EDR 6/12 internship program is to provide meaningful and unique professional experience within a studio-based environment. Our program is focused to provide robust mentorship, comprehensive long-term work experience and the challenges and rewards of the profession.

Our intent is to offer a continuous internship opportunity for students with fall and spring 6 month programs or one 12-month program. These positions are offered to talented and motivated students with backgrounds in our core disciplines of Architecture, Interior Environments and Urban Strategies. Internships are only open to design students who have completed at least six semesters at an accredited institution.
