Architectural Positions

Fellowships

2-3 years | RECENT GRADUATES AND LICENSED OR NEARLY-LICENSED ARCHITECTS

Fellowships are designed for soon-to-be or recently licensed architects. Fellowships are also the entry point for those interested in a long-term staff position.

More Information

Architectural Fellowships provide opportunities for architects and professionals in related fields to partner in the mission of 100 Fold Studio while discerning their vocational direction.  Ideal candidates have worked in the industry for 2-5 years, have an established church community, and have participated in previous missions, nonprofit or extended volunteer work.  Teachability, teamwork, and the ability to persevere through challenges are essential qualifications.

At 100 Fold Studio, our training is based on the concept of career discipleship. Technical skills, practical wisdom, and spiritual values are imparted through the guidance of the long-term staff, hands-on project opportunities and daily interactions within the larger Studio.  Fellows will focus on developing their professional, personal, and team-building skills to effectively serve other nonprofits and ministries through design.  Our goal is to provide an international, on-site experience.

Fellows at 100 Fold Studio are committed to raising funds for the organization and completing a five-month missions training program. 100 Fold Studio provides you with resources to develop a network of donors who have a clear understanding of the mission, vision, and values of 100 Fold.  Salaries are based on experience.

100 Fold Studio also has fellowship opportunities for young professionals including: a Creative Media Coordinator, Videographer, Office Administrator, and Nonprofit Associate.

Internships

6-12 months | recent graduates

Internships are designed for students and emerging professionals seeking an academic co-op,  entry-level or gap-year positions. 100 Fold Studio provides three opportunities: AmeriCorps Positions (for U.S. citizens, work is focused on Montana-based projects), Vision+Call Internships (no citizenship requirement, work on local and global projects) and International Internships (for non-U.S. interns, must have a visa that allows for 6-12 months of work or volunteer service).

AmeriCorps

Our program focuses on training young architects to provide access to affordable and environmentally-responsible architectural services to help Montana nonprofits, faith-based organizations and Native American communities in Flathead and Lake Counties increase their capacity to serve their communities while decreasing the energy costs of their buildings and better protecting the environment.

Under the guidance of licensed architects, AmeriCorps members will study various environmentally-responsible design strategies through courses accredited by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the U.S. Green Building Council. The knowledge is then applied by the members in various service-learning architectural projects. AmeriCorps members will provide design services that include feasibility studies, conceptual designs, drawings, and images for facilities improvements, fundraising, construction documents, and assist with construction administration services.

At the end of the service term, AmeriCorps members will be responsible for demonstrating a change in behavior or intention to change behavior to reduce energy consumption and/or better steward the environment by promoting environmentally-responsible design strategies. The overarching goal of the 100 Fold Studio | AmeriCorps partnership is to provide a positive service experience that leads to a career in service to others.

Service experience with 100 Fold Studio | AmeriCorps may be counted towards the National Council of Architectural Registration Board’s (NCARB) Architectural Experience Program (AXP) and may be eligible for academic credit.

If I could dream up the most ideal scenario for my first job out of college, this would be it. I got here and jumped right in to sketching out designs for the Readiness Center, and a year later was helping oversee construction. I got to be deeply involved in every phase of the project and learned so much through the process.
